Packed with solid information from start to finish, Burpee Complete Gardener leaves no stone unturned, covering garden basics such as pruning, propagation, staking, division, and harvesting in comprehensive fashion. Garden planning advice—including suggestions for a low-maintenance garden, a potted garden, an herb garden, and a garden grown from seed—is tailored to fit the specific needs and constraints of your lifestyle. Fulfilling every gardener's need for a reliable, in-depth resource, the book features fully illustrated plant portrait chapters covering the most popular plant choices from past and present. With more than 420 descriptions of annuals, biennials, perennials, bulbs, roses, vegetables, herbs, ground covers, vines, and wildflowers, even the seasoned gardener can find new and interesting options. Each plant entry describes cultivated varieties that have special appeal for American gardeners. It also includes how-to-grow information, germination instructions for plants that can be grown from seed, and tips on season-by-season care, as well as suggestions of how best to use each plant in the garden. In addition to the wealth of plant selections, Burpee Complete Gardener is loaded with helpful pointers such as a guide to must-have gardening tools, a list of disease-resistant roses, and an in-depth Q & A, answering the questions gardeners ask most. Hundreds of color photographs, how-to and descriptive line drawings, and some of the finest illustrations from Burpee catalogs dating back to the turn of the century make this volume an indispensable visual resource, as well as a timeless source of inspiration for making beautiful and productive gardens.
