Constance Casey, the most excellent garden writer at Slate.com, makes the case in her latest column for the Science of Gardening, citing the work of Friends-of-Rant Jeff Gillman and Linda Chalker-Scott. Required reading for anyone out there unfamiliar with these two outstanding researchers.
Long-time readers may remember my taking issue with the so-called "gardening information" promulgated by certain wildlife advocacy groups or my rants about the folksy but rich gardening quack Jerry Baker. Well, Gillman, Chalker-Scott and Casey herself are all on the side of old-fashioned, objective science – yay!!
Coming soon from Jeff are his quarterly updates on Hot Topics in Research for Sustainable-Gardening.com. But don’t worry; I’ll post about it here, too.
