This book is the result of a fortunate detour. In Paradise Under Glass, journalist Ruth Kassinger documented the beginnings of her education as a gardener. At some point, however, she realized that her knowledge was still sadly imperfect: Many of her plants seemed to live by their own rules. To make them thrive, she decided to learn about botany. Her eclectic self-education led her into the history of this gentle discipline, yielding as many astonishing facts and beguiling stories as it did useful tips on optimal soil replenishment and watering. A Garden of Marvels brims with eyebrow-raising accounts of what our plants are doing when we're not looking. Like her previous book, this book is itself an engaging garden of marvels. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
