Here's the gardener you wish you had next door, speaking from personal experience and offering expert advice. As Rita Buchanan writes, "This book has a mission--to inspire you to go dig up a part of your yard and plant a garden there. When that place is full, dig another spot and transform it, too. Keep this up until you're totally surrounded by fragrant flowers, tasty herbs, and colorful foliage. You'll never look back." The sixteen chapters cover some of the most popular subjects in gardening--herbs, fragrant plants, cut flowers, bulbs, and groundcovers--as well as some of the most challenging: planting under a tree, gardening on a hillside, growing flowers that survive hot summers, and choosing plants for winter beauty. Gardening leads in many directions, but they all revolve around growing plants. This is the book that will inspire you as it shows you how to get started.
