Just arrived: New gardening books to add to our impressive collection of hundreds of books in the horticulture section.
The robins are back. The grass is greening up in places. The tulips and daffodils and crocus are up. It’s time to plant annual seeds (indoors) and clean up the garden and divide your perennials outdoors. Plan something new for this year: Go with containers. Think xeriscape. Choose a hardy shrub rose. Plant a tree. Learn the weeds. Be ready for the pests. Get your gardening on!
I recommend: The Undaunted Garden by Lauren Springer
