American Horticultural Society Encyclopedia of Gardening Revised Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An essential volume packed with authoritative advice for all gardeners, the AHS Encyclopedia of Gardening guides readers expertly through the latest gardening techniques, details information on garden planning and design, covers useful tools and materials, and features an extensive glossary of plants, including trees, shrubs, and perennials. Written by experts and endorsed by the American Horticultural Society, this is truly the most comprehensive gardening reference available.

Review:

"This outstanding encyclopedia supersedes its first edition and brings gardening into the twenty-first century." Booklist

Book News Annotation:

New to the second edition of this impressive encyclopedia are the use of American Horticultural Society plant codes as well as the 2003 USDA plant hardiness zone rating, a new section on container gardening, and revision of the substantial garden design chapter. Gardeners will be inspired by the many color photos that illustrate the volume and benefit from the wealth of practical guidance, which extends to building patios and terraces as well as gardening. In addition to information on design, cultivation, plant care, selecting plants, pruning, protecting plants from weather, and definitions of different plant varieties, detailed information is given for plant propagation. In addition to the coverage of roses, perennials, ornamental trees and shrubs, chapters are included on lawn, indoor gardening, growing fruit and vegetables, and basic botany, among other topics.
