Dear Friends,

Do you already engage in hydroponics or are you just starting out and want more intensive hydroponic information? In either case you should get your copy of The Best of Growing Edge, a two volume collection of intense and deeply explored hydroponic topics. All selections have been taken from the bi-monthly magazine, Growing Edge covering back issues since 1989. This publication is on the cutting edge of what's happening in hydroponics. It's a must for every grower's bookshelf.

What actually is the magazine,The Growing Edge, all about and why should you have it in your own library? Here is what the publisher says:

"There is enough information on new equipment and techniques to keep the most avid "techno-gardener" busy for years in the pages of the magazine and in this collection of past articles. It was the lack of this information in the popular gardening press that was the driving force behind the creation of The Growing Edge. But there is much more going on here."

"Although not designed as a how-to-book, The Best of the Growing EDGE should provide new growers with the information needed to get started in high-tech gardening, indoors, outdoors or in the greenhouse. An attempt has been made to include basic information on every major topic - soilless gardening, nutrients, pest controls, environmental controls, plant varieties, propagation, production methods and other techniques. Novice or professional, we believe thinking readers (we don't have any other kind) should find much here that is useful, enlightening, even provocative."
