A Way to Garden: A Hands-On Primer for Every Season

By Margaret Roach

For Margaret Roach gardening is more than a hobby, it’s a calling. Her unique approach, which she refers to as “horticultural how-to and woo-hoo,” is a blend of vital information to memorize (like how to plant a bulb) and intuitive steps you must simply feel and surrender to. For more than twenty years, Roach has shared her deep garden knowledge, first at Martha Stewart Living and now on her popular website and podcast. Now, with A Way to Garden, she explores how she and her way of gardening have changed over the years. Following the life cycle of the garden, Roach shares helpful advice on seasonal gardening, ornamental plants, vegetable gardening, design, and organic practices. She also challenges gardeners to think beyond garden borders to consider the ways gardening can enrich the world.
