Gardening for All Seasons
by Anne Moyer Halpin
"Gardening for All Seasons" shows both the novice and the experienced gardener how to design, grow, and maintain beautiful gardens throughout the year. The basics are all here, including garden design, color selection, working the soil, and growing houseplants. But it also shows gardeners how to put their gardens in tune with the seasons of the year.
Slow Flowers : Four Seasons of Locally Grown Bouquets from the Garden, Meadow and Farm
by debra prinzing
Debra Prinzing challenged herself to create a beautiful, locally-grown bouquet for each of 52 weeks of one year (going beyond flowers to include ornamental twigs, foliage, greenhouse plants, dried pods, and more), to demonstrate that all four seasons have their own botanical character to be celebrated. She provides extensive design tips, bouquet "recipes" and region-by-region floral ingredient lists that can be found in all climate zones through the year.
