Overview

Ed Hume is the host of the longest-running television gardening show in America. If you grew up in the Seattle area, you cannot have missed him explaining how to grow a lawn, prune an azalea, or plant a perennial border. Although he is syndicated nationally his gardening roots are here in the Pacific Northwest. Finally, he has gathered his accumulated experience and wisdom for home gardeners into a single encyclopedic manual. Ed’s approach to gardening is this: keep it simple. The message he gives to readers is that anyone can have a gorgeous garden that pops in spring and summer and looks great in fall and winter, and that it doesn’t need tending every waking hour. This is a book for people who respond "gesundheit" when someone says "horticulture." Ed Hume has written this book to be the basic tool for Northwest gardeners. With chapters on lawns, perennials, bulbs, fertilizers, hedges, shrubs, groundcovers—this book covers the basics in a non-technical can-do way. Ed’s voice is friendly, down-home, and encouraging. Each plant chapter has an encyclopedic list of plant suggestions with Ed’s comments on placement and growing. He includes tens of thematic plant lists: white flowers; early-spring bulbs; flowering groundcovers; plants to grow under evergreen trees; dramatic ornamental grasses; hedges to hide the neighbors; red flowers; fragrant flowers; winter bloomers; plants for fall color; and much, much more.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
When Ed Hume launched his Gardening in America television show in 1965, Lyndon Johnson was president. Chief executives have come and gone, but Ed remains on the air, a weekly reminder of healthy, site-specific horticulture. His Gardening with Ed Hume, now revised and updated, is the print equivalent of that long-running show. Like the show, this 432-page paperback brims with valuable, easy to understand information on every aspect of gardening. The book covers it all, with full chapters on lawns, perennials, bulbs, fertilizers, hedges, shrubs, and groundcovers.
From the Publisher
