The Garden Primer



By Barbara Damrosch



The Garden Primer by Barbara Damrosch


The classic, even better! Remarkably complete, this is the one: the indispensable one-volume reference guide to gardening simply, beautifully, and well. It is jam-packed with useful information, old-fashioned common sense, and a lifetime’s worth of experience, and is thoroughly revised and expanded to be 100% organic in its recommendations. Updated with the latest on plants, soils, techniques, and tools, it includes: the basics of landscaping, emphasizing sustainable methods. Understanding what plants need and avoiding complex rules and formulas. How to choose and combine flowers for season-long color, orchestrating with perennials and accenting with annuals. Extending the season—that’s right, harvest carrots in January.

The secret to raising roses without fuss, less demanding lawns, vines with discipline, and trees that will enhance your property. There is new information on native species, and all the gardening resources you need—explained in a voice that “has the snap of a good snowpea and the spice of an old rose” (Seattle Times/Post-Intelligencer).

With more than 500 illustrations, easy-to-read diagrams & design plans for all types of gardens and landscapes.

The Garden Primer 978-0-7611-2275-3 820 pages $18.95
