Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this pretty gardening guide, garden designer O'Sullivan shows aspiring greenthumbs how to take care of their gardens all year around, from planning improvements and ordering catalogues in January, to composting weeds in June, harvesting lima beans in August, transplanting shrubs in October and applying winter mulches in December. Month by month, she divides tasks into categories (The Whole Garden; Trees and Shrubs; Flowers and Grasses; and Fruits and Vegetables) and offers quick but sufficient directions for each job. Helpful suggestions abound (e.g., mix a variety of plants in a container to create a "micro-garden" for your terrace; start some flowers from seed to build your gardening confidence; grow plants that butterflies love to have a "butterfly garden"), and O'Sullivan's tone is warm and encouraging. Beautifully illustrated with color photos and 18th century botanical illustrations, this book makes a helpful resource list and a fine gift. (Apr.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
