Award-winning garden writer Suzy Bales shares her sage advice, culled from 30 years of experience, on how to create your own garden wonderland

Suzy Bales not only gardens with the greenest of thumbs, but she imparts her gardening wisdom with a friendly, storytelling voice that is both charming and informative. Millions have delighted in her gardening columns for Family Circle, Horticulture, The New York Times, and other publications, as well as her garden spots on Good Morning America. In Suzy Bales' Down-to-Earth Gardener, she invites readers on a tour of her spectacular Long Island garden, sharing her triumphs and defeats and dispensing her invaluable advice along the way.

Laid out as a stunning visual tour-from the woodland walk around the formal rose garden to the flagstone courtyard and to the kitchen garden-the more than 150 full-color pictures beautifully illustrate the lessons Suzy imparts in the text.

Packed with the "down-to-earth" gardening secrets of the woman who has won two Quill & Trowel awards from the Garden Writers Association of America, as well as been named Garden Writer of the Year from the American Horticultural Society, this is inspirational reading for any gardener.
