Well, maybe not 1001 tips, but certainly many hundreds of tips are featured in this collection of handy information all gardeners should keep at their fingertips. Divided into sections, the tips deal with seasonal gardening issues such as getting started in the spring, as well as maintenance, planning and design, soil, critters such as pets and bugs, garden centres, naming, tools and choosing plants. The authors have written or co-written dozens of garden books and are horticultural experts.
