The new, fully updated second edition of Linda Gilkeson’s Backyard Bounty is frankly a reason for BC gardeners to celebrate. This book is like having your own Master Gardener to consult every step of the gardening experience. This encyclopedic reference demystifies gardening, bringing it back to the down-to-earth, environmentally practical activity that anyone can enjoy. Gilkeson challenges popular garden wisdom with evidence based experience. She has added many of the findings from her extraordinary books Resilient Gardens 2016 and Resilient Gardens 2017, and provides first hand insight into the effects of climate change on BC gardeners.
We feel that this is the best book ever written on gardening in British Columbia. It ought to be required reading for BC gardeners, and a treasured resource to consult for years to come.
