Need How-To Gardening Tips? Get a Copy of AHS’s Gardening Reference Guide

Since its initial publication in 2009, the American Horticultural Society’s Encyclopedia of Gardening Techniques has become an essential and treasured reference book. Now, in cooperation with Mitchell Beazley/Octopus Books USA, we’ve published an updated guide (2019) in a beautiful hard-back edition with new images and illustrations.

Our encyclopedia clearly outlines the key skills and concepts every gardener needs to be successful, no matter where in North America you live. Whether you want to grow vegetables, fruits, or herbs, create flower beds, or provide pollinator habitats, this book shows you how to accomplish your goal using earth-friendly techniques.

Update 10/2021: The Encyclopedia of Gardening Techniques is currently out of stock. A new edition will be printed in 2022. Please email membership@ahsgardening.org to inquire about preordering a copy.
