The Self-Taught Gardener: Lessons from a Country Garden
$5.69
Description
Most introductions to gardening bog down the eager beginner with bewildering theory that has little to do with the pleasures of seeing a flower bloom. The Self-Taught Gardener reveals its differences from the first page. It covers all the essential practicalities, but in an innovative format that reflects the way a gardener gradually builds skills and ambitions. Sydney Eddison helps you to avoid common mistakes (many of which she made!) or to turn them into successes whose freshness will surprise you. She teaches you how to tap into your own instinctive sense of design, color, and form, and how to learn from others - illustrating her point by taking apart well-designed gardens (by amateurs as well as professionals) and explaining what makes them work. The Self-Taught Gardener offers a wealth of practical tips on helping plants flourish, and provides invaluable lists of sturdy, versatile, and beautiful plants that will anchor your garden for years to come.

An Encyclopedia of Shade Perennials
$6.56
Description
Finding an array of unique and diverse plants for shade might seem like a daunting task, with limited options available to the gardener. Shade perennial expert W. George Schmid dispels this perception in his new encyclopedia. This companionable reference provides information on more than 7000 species and cultivars in 184 genera, from "Acanthus" to "Woodwardia" -- some new to horticulture, others unjustly overlooked, but all beautifully suited to the shade garden.
Schmid has behind him a half century of practical gardening experience, horticultural education, and extensive travel observing shade perennials in their native habitats; readers are therefore treated to both useful growing tips and his personal associations with the plants. The expert text is rounded out with 500 stunning color photographs, many taken by the author himself.
