Meet the Author

Liz Ball is a horticultural writer, photographer, researcher, and teacher whose articles and photographs have appeared in numerous catalogs, magazines, and books. Ball wrote regularly for the National Garden Bureau and Burpee's websites. Her weekly Yardening column appeared in her local newspaper for more than fourteen years. Ball has authored or co-authored a multitude of books, including the Pennsylvania Gardener's Guide (also for Cool Springs Press).

She writes on a large number of topics for gardeners but specializes in addressing issues that concern non-gardening homeowners who have lawns and plants to care for but a limited amount of time or interest of working in the yard (whom she calls "yardeners.") After decades spent teaching writing, literature, and history at the secondary school level, Ball devoted herself to horticulture. She has taught courses on gardening for local community adult and arboretum programs, as well as for various universities. Ball is a frequent lecturer, speaking often to garden clubs, hort societies, civic groups and to the public. In her spare time, Ball concentrates on a two-acre yard that serves as her informal laboratory and demonstration garden for all her "experiments."

Month-by-month Gardening In Pennsylvania 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

This book is a great guide for beginning gardeners who wishes to improve their skills. It provides basic information for growing and maintaining not only your garden but your lawn as well. The material is presented in an easy to follow manner. Information is included about basic gardening tricks such as how and when to store bulbs for the winter, proper care and maintenance of rose bushes, and selecting plants for your garden. Although the material is laid out by type of plant first and then by month, the book could benefit by adding an appendix summarizing the chores in a to do list for each month.
