The son of former B.C. Premier Bill Vander Zalm, Wim Vander Zalm of Port Coquitlam has managed a gardening centre since age nineteen. He has been a long-time guest on Fanny Kiefer's Studio 4 television program and the host of CKNW's Garden Talk.

Just Ask Wim! Down-to-Earth Gardening Answers covers horticultural concerns about all kinds of plants: vegetables, fruits and berries, herbs, annuals and perennials, shrubs, trees, hedges and vines, plus how to grow a healthy lawn organically . . . or replace the troublesome turf with one of many other groundcover options. He also shares organic pest and weed management ideas, common-sense pruning tips, fertilization and soil-building advice, plus his often-requested mulch recipe.
