Description
America's Garden Book In print since 1939, America's Garden Book has been a time-tested reference for generations of American gardeners. For the fourth edition, more than 1,000 full-color photographs have been added in addition to new chapters on environment-specific gardening. Thorough revisions have been made to keep up with current developments in horticultural practices, and new recommended plant varieties for virtually every garden contingency are included. In keeping with previous editions, the focus of the book remains on backyard gardeners and the challenges that go along with gardening in a limited space. Special attention is paid to low-maintenance plants and gardening techniques that allow for more time to be spent enjoying the garden as opposed to working in it. The new edition is particularly timely as the average American gardener has become more sophisticated and environmentally conscious. New chapters have been added on gardening by the sea and city gardens. Other chapters have been expanded with information on prairie gardening, water and bog gardening, container gardening, vegetable gardening, and gardening indoors. Almost every chapter contains list after list of recommended plants for different types of soil, for amounts of light, by height, by color, and even by fragrance. The expertise of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, one of the most acclaimed botanic gardens in the country, was utilized for the complete modernization of the book. Up-to-date information is combined with beautiful photography to illustrate the new look of the "American Garden." Now, the do-it-yourself gardener can find all the information needed in one volume.
