The Gardener's Perpetual Almanack

The Gardener's Perpetual Almanack

C$5.00Price
Did you know that red herrings or garlic could rid your garden of moles? That sweet peas sown in bonfire ash will flourish? That in 1120 the Bishop of Laon excommunicated caterpillars? That you can fertilize peach blossoms with a rabbit's tail? That February is the best time to start a beehive? This little treasure of a book harvests the wit and wisdom of over four centuries of almanacks, herbals and gardening books, and is filled with quotations from the works of great garden-lovers from John Donne to Derek Jarman, Thomas Jefferson to John Clare, Jane Austen to Vita Sackville-West.
