Enough about the rich, earthy pleasures of gardening. Anyone who has ever done it knows that gardening can be a frustrating ordeal that may make you feel as if you were born with a brown thumb. There's no better help than to be able to ask experienced gardeners any question you want. That's the beauty of this book, written in Q&A format. A sampling: Why do fruit trees fail to bear? (Low winter temperatures, overfertilization.) How much sunlight does a vegetable garden need? (Five to six hours a day of full sunlight.) An appendix of seed and plant companies completes this worthwhile addition to any gardening library. (Garden Way, $16.95)
