Synopses & Reviews
Sarah Stein's brilliant book Noah's Garden placed the author at the forefront of the new field of ecological gardening. Now, in Planting Noah's Garden, she tells the even more fascinating story of the many ways people in all parts of the country are redesigning their surroundings to welcome back the birds, butterflies, fireflies, and other creatures driven away by the sterility of the typical suburban landscape. In the second half of the book she offers specific information readers will find nowhere else: how to learn the common flora of your region; how to handle group wholesale orders; how to kill invasive plants; how to collect and plant wild seeds; how to start a tree island; how to plan a patio habitat - and much, much more. Planting Noah's Garden is both a call to action and a blueprint for a new gardening aesthetic.
