Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on regional landscapes and plant communities, the wildflower garden is a harmonious, sustainable partnership between a gardener and the forces of nature. Learn how to follow nature’s lead to create any style of wildflower garden, from an untamed meadow to a formal design using native plants. This easy-to-read guide explains how to capture the visual essence of a natural scene by understanding the spatial patterns that exist in unplanned plant communities. Nature’s patterns also provide a rich source of inspiration for garden design, and a portfolio of wildflower gardens here—from traditional beds and borders to shade gardens and meadows—provides inspiration for a wide range of garden conditions and aesthetic objectives.

Synopsis:

If your living room, bedroom, or kitchen is your garden, this beautifully photographed guide--written by North America's foremost bonsai pioneers--will keep your miniature trees thriving. An illustrated guide to styles displays a wide range of possibilities, from slanting trees with gnarled trunks to a tiny "forest." See how to control airflow and humidity in the home and construct a sheltered growing chamber. Find out one expert's tips for success, advice on artificial light, and suggestions on fertilizers and water. Grow from seeds and cuttings, combat pests and problems, master wiring techniques, and look at bonsai types from tropical blooming and fruiting to Texas ebony and succulents. Plus 100 plants that work well inside and a guide to ceramic containers to show them off.

Synopsis:

Growing native wildflowers is the most beautiful and carefree way to bring the natural landscape into your backyard. In this handbook, discover the beautiful wildflowers and foliage plants that best suit your natural garden, from woodland beds to prairie meadows to alpine rockeries to wetlands.
