A Fantastic book for beginners and seasoned gardeners alike Having read one of Nancy Ondra's previous books and love it, I was excited by this latest book, which covers my favorite type of plants - perennials. With "Five-Plant Gardens" Ondra has created a bible for anyone looking to work with perennial plants. You don't need the perfect light, soil, or moisture conditions because the 52 'recipes' the book guides you through getting the best results from any garden. Having read a couple other books on the subject, I was worried that Ondra's book would simply be a repeat of them. I couldn't have been more wrong. The content is excitingly unique and simple yet informative. Boiling down your focus to just five-plant gardens makes this growing season that much more exciting. In the words of the author, this "simply to follow planting plan can make the different between inspiring success and frustrating disappointment."
This is a very helpful reference for beginners (like myself) and provides great plans and information for non-beginners.
