Garden for Every Season
Does your heart skip a beat at the thought of planting new flower beds? Does the smell of freshly tilled ground make you weak in the knees? Does the thought of cooking with your own herbs and vegetables excite you?
Passion for gardening touches each of us in a different way, and in The Ultimate Gardener you'll meet others who share your zeal. Laugh at anecdotes of gardeners who try to cut corners and end up making extra work for themselves, and pets who fail to realize that gardens are off-limits. Share the joy every gardener feels when those first tiny sprouts pop out each spring, or your prize tomatoes make it through a midsummer storm. Whether your garden is a tiny rooftop terrace or acreage as far as the eye can see, every gardener will recognize the infatuation with growing things that winds through each and every story.
And no matter how successful you might be with your own garden, you're certain to glean a few new ideas from the passionate gardeners who generously share what they know about designing a small-space garden, soil preparation, and starting plants from seeds, growing amazing herbs and low-maintenance roses, and many other subjects near and dear to a gardener's heart.
You'll be inspired, too, by the stunning photos throughout. The Ultimate Gardener will delight you and motivate you to create the garden of your dreams.
