Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Smith and Hawken, and now with a striking new cover, here is a book that offers a distinctly American approach to the art, craft, and pastime of gardening. Embracing British perennial beds, French intensive techniques, antique roses, heirloom vegetables, alternative lawns, and a bedrock philosophy of working with-not against-the ecosystem, this illustrated organic gardener's bible includes a 350-entry color plant guide and is written for all North American regions and hardiness zones.

Readers will learn how to feed the dirt, achieve good tilth, create and use compost. How to plant in contours, manage water, plant outdoors. How to work with plants that not only come back every year, but bloom early and long, smell great, and even provide a pleasing silhouette in winter. There are sections on tools and gear, grooming and deadheading, winterizing and ornamenting the garden; digging and planting; propagating garden plants from seed; the secrets of maintenance. Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club's Country Homes and Gardens Club, the Newbridge Garden Book Club, and the Rodale Book Club. Over 140,000 copies in print.

Synopsis:

A bible on how to garden the Smith & Hawken way, this book distills years of experience, knowledge, and passion into eleven jam-packed chapters and a full-color plant guide. Emphasizing organic gardening, Smith & Hawken teaches readers how to feed the dirt, achieve good tilth, create and use compost, grow heirloom vegetables and flowers, and more. Illustrations & photos.

Synopsis:

The more you garden, the more you grow. Smith and Hawken offers a distinctly American approach to the art, craft, and pastime of gardening. Embracing English perennial beds, French intensive techniques, antique roses, heirloom vegetables, alternative lawns, and a bedrock philosophy of working within the ecosystem, THE BOOK OF OUTDOOR GARDENING is a fully illustrated guide to gardening responsibly, featuring a separate color reference to 350 favorite plants. It is for anyone who shares the Smith and Hawken belief that every garden counts.
