IN the foreword to this new edition of The New Zealand Gardening Calendar, Michael Crooks describes his aim as "to encourage the beginner, the disappointed, and the successful to become knowledgeable, better and more successful" in the garden.

Crooks, who writes on organics for Weekend Gardener, sets out to achieve this by providing a comprehensive, detailed, year-round, month-by-month picture of when to do what in the home garden.

This is an updated edition of a popular, proven and practical book, its information reflecting tried and true "chemical" and "non-chemical" methods of managing your garden and the friendly and no-so-friendly bugs that may be visiting your patch of soil.
