as a beginner i wanted to know about planting conditions, what kind of
fertilizing and when to do it, and how and when to divide. there's
nothing like lots o color illustation to confirm one's faith and to show
that all the work is worth. as for diseases and pest, i'msorry i ever
heard the word "borer".
