"Through trials and tribulations and hardly learned patience, I have gained some of the secrets of many of our best hardy flowering plants and shrubs. Many friends have asked me to tell them when to plant or transplant, when to sow this or that seed, and how to prepare the beds and borders; in fact, this has occurred so often that it has long been in my mind to write down what I know of hardy gardening, that other women might be helped to avoid the experiments and mistakes I have made, which only served to cause delay." This is how Helena Rutherfurd Ely introduces A Woman's Hardy Garden, and what better reason to write - or read - a book? Those experiments and mistakes resulted in detailed advice on everything from soil preparation to garden design, all imparted with a charming style that's at once assertive and self-deprecating - a style that is the hallmark of the true expert.
