Easy Gardens A To Z

You can have fun and feel pride in your gorgeous sunny or shady garden. It requires little or no maintenance to look beautiful year around if you follow the directions in “Easy Gardens A to Z”—the only book you need to purchase. The 334 pages of “Easy Gardens A to Z” is a compilation of all I have read and learned firsthand over the years. It is written in a format both beginning and experienced gardeners will find easy to follow, using common names for plants. For 20 years I lived in Philadelphia and had a shady garden which bloomed 12 months a year with little or no maintenance. My sunny garden produced fruit and vegetables with little work. You, too, can do this. It seems almost unbelievable, but in one year you can have fun and watch your easy garden grow with few weeds and no visible leaves from bulbs dying back. SELECT THE PLANTS by growing season so that you can have flowers blooming 12 months a year in most climates in the shade or sun. Each year they will grow, bloom and die back on their own. Do the work one year and reap the harvest for many years to come. Guided by the table of contents in “Easy Gardens A to Z,” you will readily find answers to all your questions: *FROM designing your garden by following the easy steps in the 47 garden designs plus hundreds of other design ideas; *TO designing decks, paths and water features;*TO painting walls and selecting all-weather furniture; * TO preparing your soil or using the no-dig raised bed designs; * TO planting and maintaining shady and sunny perennial and annual flowers, vegetables, fruits, bulbs, grasses, climbers, bushes and trees; * TO dealing with garden compost, fertilizer, pests, weeds and disease; *TO reaping your harvest. Each page of “Easy Gardens A to Z” is filled with a wealth of ideas and directions on how to create your own little slice of paradise. The 47 garden designs include designs and plants suggested to create an adventure play area for children, a wheelchair accessible garden, a garden for visually impaired or a garden for cooking or relaxing. Also included are fragrant and romantic gardens, night gardens which glow in the dark, classic cottage gardens, hanging gardens and gardens designed for a noisy city balcony or windy rooftop. You might like a star-shaped garden in silvers, blues and lavenders or a beautiful tiled garden which can have little or no plantings. There are shady or sunny gardens, wet or dry gardens, warm climate or cold climate gardens, hillside terraces, wildflower meadows, eco-friendly gardens or wildlife and woodland gardens. You might want a place to attract butterflies, hummingbirds or even create a bird sanctuary. Or choose a 3-season garden that doubles as a parking space during the winter months. How about a nautical theme garden, Mediterranean garden, Hawaiian garden, Indian garden or Oriental garden – your choice! “Easy Gardens A to Z” is the only book you need as each page is filled with a wealth of ideas and directions on how to create your own little slice of paradise. “Congratulations to you on your practical, easily understandable, delightful gardening book that has over 300 pages chock full of everything a gardener wants and needs to know to plant a lovely garden.

I have never been able to grow anything. After years of trying to keep plants in the house I ended up just buying cut flowers because at least I didn't get upset when they died. A friend told me about this book and I read it up. This book really does give you everything. If you just want a few flowers in the front of the house, this is the book for you. If you want to feed your family fresh vegatables that you've grown yourself, this is the book for you. If you want to create a beautiful garden setting in your yard, this is the book for you. It really does cover everything from A to Z. The author is very insightful.

Wonderful step by step instructions from designing gardens, preparing soil, and growing flowers, trees and bushes in shade and sun year around in zone 4 and others. Exciting ideas that really work!
