Welcome to Art Wolk's

home on the Internet

Welcome to my website, devoted to gardeners who want their hobby to be fun and their garden books and lectures to be both enlightening and entertaining.

I confess that Iím a non-conformist garden writer and lecturer who believes that garden books and programs should be filled with personally-tested directions, conveyed with some attempt to give the audience a delightful, non-sedative, laugh-out-loud experience.

When you read my books or attend my lectures, feel free to laugh at my overwrought successes as well as the innumerable mistakes Iíve made over the decades that helped me learn how to stop killing plants. I also hope you can identify with my misadventures and chuckle at some of your own horticultural foibles.

One promise: the woes of the world are heavy enough upon our shoulders, so Iíll do everything I can to lighten your load.

After all, isnít gardening supposed to be about having fun?   



P.S. Feel free to click the "Art's Biography" and "Art's Horticultural Accomplishments" buttons to the left to get a dose of my horticultural history to date. 


THE LATEST NEWS  The Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA) just gave Bulb Forcing a Benjamin Franklin Silver Award in the home/garden book category.

Art's newest book will teach you how to make potted bulbs bloom indoors when winter is at its worst.

 Purchase signed, inscribed copies of Bulb Forcing for Beginners and the Seriously Smitten for $26.91.

In Bulb Forcing, you'll learn how to grow tulips, daffodils, crocuses, and the rest of their spring-blooming brethren indoors, all winter long, when the view outside your window reveals snow, sleet, or icy rain. Instead, imagine your windowsills filled with an array of dazzling flowers. In the informative and entertaining book, Art reveals the secrets he's used for three decades to win silver cups and baskets of blue ribbons. It's filled with 350 glorious photos that show you exactly how to produce your own wintertime flower show every year. And, Art admits, bulb forcing requires no Green Thumb. As long as you can put soil and bulbs in a pot without mortally wounding yourself, you'll succeed. 

Art has taught bulb-forcing segments on the Discovery Channel, FOX, CBS, and heís had his magazine articles published in Better Homes and Gardens, Fine Gardening, and other publications. This elegant book has easy-to-understand instructions as well as Artís laugh-out-loud humor threading its way through every chapter.
