Publisher Comments:

You can transform your garden into a handmade, personality-infused oasis. Author Lorene Edwards Forkner — part eco-friendly non-traditionalist, part crafty creative — will show you how.

Projects run the gamut from eye-catching structures, like a pergola made from plumbing pipes, to imaginative details, like a tree-hung chandelier for nighttime ambiance. You'll also find helpful plant guides to accompany projects: delectable herbs to fill a stacking container tower, stellar succulents for a vertical gutter garden, glorious flowering vines to climb a bamboo obelisk, and so much more.

Ready to get started? All you need are refreshingly simple, inexpensive materials — hardware store basics, salvaged goods, repurposed castoffs from cluttered basements — along with a little do-it-yourself spirit. With clear instructions and inspiring variations on every theme, this book is easy to follow and easy to love. Your journey to a made-from-scratch outdoor space starts here.

About the Author

Lorene Edwards Forkner is the author of several gardening books, including Hortus Miscellaneous (2007), Growing Your Own Vegetables, and Canning and Preserving Your Own Harvest (both 2009). Her writing has appeared in several national and regional publications including Organic Gardening, MaryJane's Farm, Northwest Garden News, and Edible Seattle.

A popular speaker with a warm engaging manner, Lorene is always eager to weigh in on horticultural mysteries, offer direction for design conundrums, and teach DIY gardeners how to dig in and craft a personal landscape filled with an abundance of interest and delicious flavor.

Lorene considers her approach to making gardens to be rooted in childhood outdoor play, supported by a degree in fine art and years of experience owning and operating Fremont Gardens, a small specialty retail nursery in Seattle, Washington.

At home in West Seattle, Lorene tends a city garden abundantly filled with favorite plants, a small but productive vegetable garden, plenty of room for relaxation, and a tiny vintage travel trailer. She fully admits she is a garden geek most at bliss when covered in dirt. You can follow her adventures at PlantedAtHome.com.
