Understanding Roots Book Review

Someone on HGTVgardens Ask & Share posted: “What can I use to kill tree roots?”(sigh). I can so related to this issue in the garden especially when our stump grinder isn’t working. Immediately, when I read the question I knew they must be talking about a Poplar Tree.   After recording the virtual book review with  Robert Kouriks’ and his book ‘Understanding Roots’ I totally viewed plants in a different light.

Here are highlights from the presentation featuring Understanding Roots by Author Robert Kourik.  The presentation was recorded and discussed on a Garden Chatter presentation.

Understanding Roots Book Review on Garden Chatter

“I received much of my early training (and numerous continuing-education credits) in life skills from the School of Hard Knocks. ”  

I learn so much about gardening after speaking with Robert about his book.  It was really cool to learn that he was the first to use the phrase ‘edible landscape’.  For a complete list of all of Roberts’ books on Amazon I’ve provided my affiliate link.
