With a relaxed, Southern charm Farmer invites readers into his community of plants, people, and landscapes, gently urging readers to adopt old gardening ways and adapt them to 21st-century life. "Publishers Weekly" Engaging Each chapter describes a time-honored skill or idea, introduces people who have mentored Farmer in these older ways, and shows readers how these practices can be adapted for modern times This treasure trove of homespun botanical advice will remind growers why they fell in love with gardening in the first place. "Booklist" Farmer s enthusiasm for sharing his and his mentors knowledge shines through the text, and the color photographs are beautiful and useful. "Library Journal" I can t think of a recent gardening book I have enjoyed more. Nowhere else could I have met so many wise gardening mentors or learned about a sapro-entrepreneur and rose rustlers. "Garden Rant" A compelling tour through generations of hard-won gardening wisdom and traditions, through the eyes of Jenks Farmer and his own garden mentors. "The American Gardener" Farmer is a natural storyteller. "Somerset Daily American" "Deep-Rooted Wisdom: Skills and Stories from Generations of Gardeners"is not nostalgia or reminiscence; it is a guide to how old skills and ideas can be adapted, using the latest science, for modern gardening Farmer is an original, in the best sense of the word, and "Deep-Rooted Wisdom" is a highly original book. "Cherokee Library" Peppered with stories and humor, this treasure trove of down to-earth gardening advice passed down through generations is a great read for both the new and the master gardener. "Charleston Daily Mail" This is a down-to-earth handbook of traditional gardening methods...A wonderful gift for the gardener in your life. "Norwich Magazine" a delightful retro guide to simpler yet successful ways to grow and enjoy plants. "Carolina Country" This is a delicious book to pour over because there are so many connections between people and plants. "The Herald-Journal" Novice gardeners, veteran planters and everyone in between can find something to enjoy inside the pages features practical lessons, oral histories and DIY pointers.

Reseña del editor:

With a straightforward yet engaging narrative, how-to projects and explanatory photos, this book will teach gardeners some of the old fashioned, low tech and sustainable techniques that have begun to disappear. It features profiles of an older generation of gardeners who still use these skills and profiles of younger gardeners who have resurrected some of them in the past decade.
