If you want to improve the versatility of your gardening, this book is for you. Raised beds make it easier to garden for many reasons: you can control the soil, the plants are easier to reach, you can grow quite a lot more plants and you can put the garden wherever you have at least six hours of sunlight. They are easy to build and they're great for large or small lots. Alan Jackson takes you through all the steps and all of the seasons of a Canadian year.
Born in Simcoe, Ontario, to a family of food processors, A. H. JACKSON has always been fascinated by the skies above our heads. He flew his first plane at 14 and left home at 17 to continue his atmospheric exploration. Jackson believes that, in the twine of life, there are two special genes unique to humankind—hope and humour—and thinks we should all turn to the funny side of life in the face of adversity. He must have quite the sense of humour, then, since he’s been struck by lightning five times! Alan has co-authored a mystery—Pretty Maids all in a Row—and has several adventure books for young adults in the wings.
