According to Mr. Drysdale 

 

My book.

 

Over 35 years ago, I wrote a book on gardening in containers.

 

Hi, I’m Art Drysdale, with news on the latest edition.

 

My book for balcony gardeners, whether they be apartment or condo dwellers, or even house owners with large decks, covered the whole spectrum of growing plants in containers.  The section that attracted the most attention was that of shrub, tree and rose growing in containers, and having the plants live over the Winter, even in areas as cold as Ottawa.  Many who like to garden also like to see some plants in the winter, whether covered in snow, or not.  I detailed the types of needle evergreens and smaller trees which container gardeners could depend upon for a good display 12 months of the year.  The book was quite successful, and though there have been others on similar lines, no other author seemed to go into the detail I did on the variety of plants available for container planting.  There are ever-so-many new varieties of annuals, perennials, trees, evergreens and shrubs that have been introduced in the past three decades, and most of these are named in the present edition.  I also added an extensive new chapter on water gardening on balconies and decks, even where there is not full sun.

 

The name of the book is Gardening Off The Ground, and it received excellent reviews across the country.  It has 168 pages, 70 sketches, six pages of colour photos and cover photo of my balcony.

 

Now, breaking news, I’ve just completed converting the book into an e-book which avoids all the costs of printing, shipping and handling. I simply send it to you as easy PDF e-mail attachments.

 

The price is $12.99 including HST.

 

For a copy, simply send me an e-mail to art@artdrysdale.com OR call this Toronto number 647-977-7507.

 

That Toronto number again is 647-977-7507.

 

I’m Art Drysdale !

Discover What Anti-Pesticide And Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists Are Doing And Saying About Subversively Imposing Their Life-Style Choices Against Our Society

 

 

Read  …  Force Of Nature  ―  The Whole Truth From An Independent Perspective.

 

Communities and businesses are being HARMED and DESTROYED and RAPED by PROHIBITIONS against pest control products used in the Urban Landscape, and by other ACTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISM.

 

We are living in the 9|11 Era of Anti Pesticide and Environmental Terrorism where at least ONE SUBVERSIVE ACT OF TERROR is perpetrated EVERY SINGLE DAY by these terrorist.

 

We are living in the DARK AGE OF ANTI PESTICIDE TERRORISM where sound science is trumped by FAKE SCIENTISTS, JUNK SCIENCE and UNVERIFIABLE SECRET EVIDENCE through FABRICATION, INNUENDO, and INTERNET RUMOR  ―  scientific research PROVES that pest control products CAUSE NO HARM and can be USED SAFELY.

 

An informed public is better able to protect itself and its communities and businesses from so-called activists who are THE LEAST QUALIFIED TO PROVIDE ANY ADVICE about pest control products or the environment.

 

NORAHG is the National Organization Responding Against HUJE that seek to harm and destroy the Green space industry, and the well being of our communities.

 

NORAHG morally represents the VAST SILENT MAJORITY of people associated with turf and ornamental plant maintenance who are OPPOSED to Anti Pesticide PROHIBITION and the CLOSURE or ABANDONMENT of green spaces under the RIDICULOUS PRETEXT of somehow « saving » the environment.

 

NORAHG is a NATIONAL NON PROFIT NON PARTISAN organization that does not accept money from corporations or governments or trade associations, and represents NO VESTED INTERESTS WHATSOEVER.

 

NORAHG is dedicated to reporting the work of RESPECTED and HIGHLY RATED EXPERTS who promote ENVIRONMENTAL REALISM and PESTICIDE TRUTHS.

 

NORAHG pledges to deliver comprehensive reports that are worthy of peoples’ time and of peoples’ concern, reports that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet.

 

NORAHG was the brainchild of William H. Gathercole and his colleagues in 1991.  Mr. Gathercole is now retired, although his name continues to appear as founder.

 

Force Of Nature was launched by NORAHG for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet on January 1st, 2009   ―   however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone FORCE OF NATURE Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On January 1st, 2009, Force Of Nature Reports were launched for CONTINUOUS transmission on the Internet   ―   however, the VERY FIRST Stand-Alone Force Of Nature Report was issued on September 19th, 2008.

 

On March 15th, 2010, Uncle Adolph independently launched The Pesticide Truths, an easy-to-use Web-Site that collects relevant reports of information right-off-the-press.

 

Pesticide Truths and Force Of Nature, in some ways, are like Google for everything concerning the SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES of Anti-Pesticide and Enviro-Lunatic Terrorists.
