Overview

With this major, oversized new book in the Taylor's series, gardeners need look no further for complete, sensible, and specific explanations of everything they need to know about growing a host of the most beloved plants. "Where can I get it?" "Which is the best cultivar for my garden?" "Should I fertilize it when I plant it?" "Do I cut it back after it flowers?" "Can I divide it?" To these and hundreds of other questions, readers will find practical answers and helpful, encouraging advice. Includes: directions for growing new plants from seeds, cuttings, division, and more, with specific instructions for the best method of propagating each species; ideas for how to use plants in the landscape and suggestions for suitable companion species; and a techniques glossary that gives step-by-step instructions for essential tasks such as planting, dividing, and propagating. The author takes the mystery out of selecting such plants as irises and daylilies, which come in a mind-boggling number of varieties, by describing the best choices for the reader's own garden.
