Taylor's Guide to Growing North America's Favorite Plants: A Detailed How-To-Grow Guide to Selecting, Planting, and Caring For the Best Classic Plants by Barbara Ellis

A book that answers every question, from "Where do I get it?" to "How do I plant it?" "Do I fertilize it then, or when?" "With what?" "Should I cut it back after it flowers?" "Or in the fall (or not at all)?" "Can I divide it?" "How, and when?" With more than four hundred full-color photographs, this beautiful, fact-filled reference answers every question about growing the classic garden plants - from foolproof host as to tricky delphiniums, from roses to flowering dogwoods. A mini-encyclopedia for each entry lists the best varieties to buy for the reader's own garden. Plus: a complete guide to year-round care, including watering, mulching, fertilizing, deadheading, dividing, pruning, and more; an illustrated techniques glossary that gives step-by-step instructions on how to perform garden tasks; suggestions on how to use the plants in the home landscape; directions on how to increase your stock of plants by propagating them yourself.
