A Woman's Hardy Garden by Helena Rutherfurd Ely

"Love of flowers and all things green and growing is with many men and women a passion so strong that it often seems to be a sort of primal instinct." So writes Helena Rutherford Ely in this engaging book on hardy flowers that is both instructional and charming to read. Chapters include instruction on how to prepare the soil, design a garden, and plant a small plot. The middle section of the book includes detailed information on annuals and perennials and other flowers, all of which are lovingly and thoroughly described. And the final part includes accents that can further enhance the beauty of the garden- water, walks, sundials, and others.

Helena Rutherford Ely was the author of Another Hardy Garden Book and The Practical Flower Garden. She maintained homes in Manhattan and Sussex County, New Jersey. She died in 1920.
