Overview

The Gin and Tonic Gardener is designed for those of us who would rather enjoy whatever green space we can carve out for ourselves outside our humble homes than toil in the dirt and muck to achieve an urban version of Versailles. And instead of hoeing and plowing barren soil to achieve spectacular results, a stiff drink is the perfect tonic to an unruly flower bed. Janice Wells reveals inventive ways to transform a mundane concrete pathway into one that looks like paving stones, how to disguise an ugly fence with vines, and how to scour rummage sales for inexpensive outdoor furniture. She also offers a listing of easy-to-grow plants that have delighted her with many colorful rewards despite her willful neglect, poor growing conditions, and being occasionally doused with the remnants of a strong gin and tonic.
