Plan, create, and maintain a beautiful garden! Encompassing ornamental plants, fruits, vegetables, and herbs, this invaluable book lets you create the garden you want and gives you sound, practical advice every step of the way. The Up-to-Date Guide: Created in cooperation with one of the premier gardening authorities, the American Horticultural Society Gardening Manual is packed with information on all aspects of planning, making, and maintaining a garden. It presents expert advice in a quick-reference format that meets the requirements of today's busy gardeners.

Part 1 helps you choose the style of garden best suited to your lifestyle, site, and budget, bearing in mind the time you are prepared to spend on maintenance. Part 2 provides full coverage of essential gardening skills and is organized according to areas of the garden for easy reference. Part 3 takes every season and showcases a selection of plants that are reliable, easy to grow, and readily available performers. Part 4 sets out key tasks season by season to keep your garden in peak condition throughout the year. Practical Expertise: A superb grounding for the beginner and an authoritative companion guide for the enthusiast, this comprehensive reference work also includes garden design and planning, the choice and care of plants, and the construction of hard features. The emphasis throughout is on practicality and achievability, with high-maintenance elements such as herbaceous borders reinterpreted for the modern garden.
