Jeff Gillman, the bestselling author of The Truth About Garden Remedies, and co-author Meleah Maynard back up every good recommendation with sound horticultural and botanical science. Decoding Gardening Advice is the first and only hard-hitting, evidence-based book that every gardener needs for definitive advice on everything from bulbs, annuals, and perennials to edibles, trees, and soil care.  Book signing to follow presentation.  Beverages will be served.

 Decoding Gardening Advice will be available for purchase by cash, charge or check for $16.95 plus tax. Horticultural Society members will receive their 15% discount with their membership card.

Jeff Gillman loathes advice that is given without concern for the consequences. He wrote a tell-all book after hearing self-proclaimed experts spouting things such as feeding syrup to plants, and he lectures on a variety of topics including homebrewed remedies and organic pesticides.

Meleah Maynard is a journalist, editor, and master gardener. Her work appears regularly in magazines, including Northern Gardener, The History Channel Magazine, Gardening How-To and Midwest Home.
