Down to Earth - Practical Thoughts for Passionate Gardeners (Hardcover): Margot Rochester Down to Earth - Practical Thoughts for Passionate Gardeners (Hardcover)
Margot Rochester
R397 Discovery Miles 3 970 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Down to Earth is about gardening for pleasure: exerting minimal effort for maximum results. So many gardening books make America's favorite hobby seem both mentally and physically laborious. They are full of esoteric advice on color theory, plant combinations, and nutrient requirements, as well as stern admonitions to double-dig, weed, and color coordinate. Rochester encourages readers to garden for self-gratification. No hoeing, no tilling, no turning of piles. No chemical insecticides or herbicides, either. The author's goal is to encourage and enable gardeners to simplify tasks, saving time and money, while making their gardens their own. Addressing soil preparation, plant selection, propagating, seed starting, mulching, on-the-spot composting and so much more, Down to Earth is an entertainingly wry book of gardening throughout the seasons.

The Garden Interior - A Year of Inspired Beauty (Paperback): David Jensen The Garden Interior - A Year of Inspired Beauty (Paperback)
David Jensen; Foreword by Barbara Paul Robinson
R305 Discovery Miles 3 050 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The Garden Interior is the beautiful and inspired story of how one great garden raised a family and of what goes on inside the heart and mind of a gardener. Against the backdrop of the story of one modern-day family growing up in a rambling old arts and crafts house with a gorgeous acre of lush, mature gardens, this loving memoir is filled with gardening wisdom, humor, and nostalgia for growing up in the 1960s and '70s; it is also loaded with distinctive foodie tips and recipes that will inspire you to try them, whether you are a gardener or not. You'll also experience a garden in each month of the calendar and encounter a lively and readable guide to being a better and more engaged gardener by understanding the rich interior life of this beautiful discipline and craft. The Garden Interior is more than the story of a family and gardening, though. It is about persistence, hope, letting go, and saying goodbye-to our gardens, to our homes, and to our children. It is about letting the things and people we love fulfill their own destinies and be what they must be. It is about navigating love and loss and change by surrendering the self and practicing humble acceptance. The Garden Interior is for anyone who has had these life experiences, whether sad or joyful. Its powerful final pages will move you and change you.

Garden Practices and Their Science (Paperback): Geoff Dixon Garden Practices and Their Science (Paperback)
Geoff Dixon
R746 Discovery Miles 7 460 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Written in a clear and accessible style, Garden Practices and Their Science guides gardeners in the practical arts of plant husbandry and in their understanding of its underpinning principles. The author, Professor Geoff Dixon, is an acknowledged and internationally respected horticulturist and microbiologist; he intertwines these arts and principles carefully, expertly leading readers from one to the other. Achieving the manipulation of plant life is described in eight full-colour, well-illustrated chapters covering the growing of potatoes, bulb onions, legumes, small-seeded vegetables, soft fruit, bulbs and herbaceous ornamentals in great detail. Environmental factors controlling the successful husbandry of these crops is described in simple, non-technical language, increasing gardeners' enjoyment and competence. Gardeners are also informed of the tools and equipment they require and their safe use. Also provided are a series of simple, straightforward tests identifying the aerial and soil environments beneficial for plant growth using readily accessible domestic tools. Discussions of very straightforward techniques for vegetative propagation conclude this book. Each chapter ends with a list of the gardening knowledge that has been gained by readers. The structure of this book fulfils a longstanding need for descriptions of practical skills integrated with the corresponding biological reactions of plants. Emphasis is placed on gardeners' development of healthy soils, which encourage vigorous, active root systems capable of withstanding stresses-an aspect of gardening that rarely receives sufficient attention. Tailored for readers requiring clear and concise directions, this very practical book is an instruction manual directed at early-stage gardening learners. These include people of all ages and requirements such as new garden owners, allotment-holders, apprentices and students of basic levels in the Royal Horticultural Society's or City & Guilds qualifications, career changers, community gardeners and those needing applied biological knowledge for GCSE examinations.

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER NIGEL - One of Britain's favourite dogs! MONTY DON - One of Britain's favourite presenters. When Monty Don's golden retriever Nigel became the surprise star of BBC Gardeners' World inspiring huge interest, fan mail and his own social media accounts, Monty Don wanted to explore what makes us connect with animals quite so deeply. In many respects Nigel is a very ordinary dog; charming, handsome and obedient, as so many are. He is a much loved family pet. He is also a star. By telling Nigel's story, Monty relates his relationships with the other special dogs in his life in a memoir of his dogs past and very much present. Witty, touching and life-affirming, Nigel: My family and other dogs is wonderfully heart-warming. Monty Don is a great writer coming out of the garden and into the hearts and homes of every dog lover in the UK. 'I have always had a dog, or dogs. I cannot imagine life without them. I am just as much a fan of Nigel as any besotted viewer. In the book I explore why we love dogs and what they mean to us emotionally and domestically. I look back on all the dogs in my life - all of which I have loved deeply and which have been an essential part of my life. So, this is the book of Nigel - but also the book of all our dogs in every British family and a celebration of the deep love we feel for them' Monty Don

Hortulus Farm, one of the most celebrated private gardens in America, is known as for its opulence and evocative mix of classical design and modern sensibilities. It has been featured in publications like House & Garden, House Beautiful, and Country Living and the New York Times called it "formal, intimate, and grand." In Chasing Eden, Jack Staub and Renny Reynolds use their Pennsylvania-based garden to teach home gardeners the principles of garden design. And more importantly, how and when to break those rules to create a unique, attention-worthy landscape. Readers will learn about vistas and focal points; hardscape; garden furnishing and decoration; and plant palette. They'll also learn more conceptual approaches, like the use of reveal and surprise, and how to beautifully incorporate a kitchen garden into a designed landscape. Equal parts inspirational and practical, this lavishly illustrated book, featuring photography by Rob Cardillo, will help gardeners create their own personal Edens.

Brandywine Cottage is David Culp's beloved two-acre Pennsylvania garden where he mastered the design technique of layering -- interplanting many different species in the same area so that as one plant passes its peak, another takes over. The result is a nonstop parade of color that begins with a tapestry of heirloom daffodils and hellebores in spring and ends with a jewel-like blend of Asian wildflowers at the onset of winter.

"The Layered Garden" shows you how to recreate Culp's majestic display. It starts with a basic lesson in layering -- how to choose the correct plants by understanding how they grow and change throughout the seasons, how to design a layered garden, and how to maintain it. To illustrate how layering works, Culp takes you on a personal tour through each part of his celebrated garden: the woodland garden, the perennial border, the kitchen garden, the shrubbery, and the walled garden. The book culminates with a chapter dedicated to signature plants for all four seasons.

As practical as it is inspiring, "The Layered Garden" will provide you with expert information gleaned from decades of hard work and close observation. If you thought that a four-season garden was beyond your reach, this book will show you how to achieve that elusive, tantalizing goal.
