Description

Product Description

Whether you have a charming container garden or an elegant topiary, this oversized, 448-page, photo-packed guide explodes with 1,000 practical tips on making it bloom more beautifully with less effort and time. From water gardens to roof havens, a staggering variety of design and planting choices burst from the pages.

From Library Journal

This gardening overview is divided into four sections: "The Contained Garden," "The Garden in Bloom," "Garden Style," and "Garden Themes." Subjects range from ground covers and annuals to fruit, alpine, and water gardens. But because of the sheer number of subjects included, each topic is covered in a mere two to four pages, with minimal textAthough the many spectacular photographs show a wide variety of plants, gardens, and garden styles. Entire books are available on many of these topics, so McGlynn is only touching upon each. She concludes with lists of plants in various categoriesAcontainer plants, border plants, trees and shrubs, etc.Abut omits USDA hardiness zones. While this book would be useful to browsers choosing a style of garden or looking to add to established gardens, it is an optional purchase for most libraries.ASue O''Brien, Downers Grove P.L., IL

From the basic necessities to imaginative ideas for accessorizing, this book gives you the information you need to create a beautiful garden. It covers everything from where to start with container plants, to making a woodland garden. There are ideas on fences, gates, trellises, pathways, tiering systems, essential perennials and home produce to mention just a few. The photographs are amazing and plentiful. If you don''t get inspired by this book, you must be brain dead! When it promises there are over 1,000 inspirational ideas and tips to transform your garden, it delivers. I refer to this book on a regular basis for the plant list and garden calendar.

The purchase of this book was not meant for gardening in our purchase. My wife is an artist and wanted the book for the beautiful pictures that she prefers to use for her paintings.

I''m always a little put-off by these enormous gardening books. I worry that the instructions and plant listings will be too general, and that their real function will be as a doorstop or a prop for a broken coffee table leg. I''m quite happy to report that The Ultimate Book of Gardening, while also making a substantial doorstop, is actually a terrific guide. And despite the unwieldiness, I''ve referred to it often, as I find the step-by-step guides clearly illustrated and the text is well-marked, simple, and sensible.

To name a few of the articles: laying stone paths, harvesting and keeping fruit throughout the winter, laying sod, creating gorgeous containers, setting up plots, drawing landscape plans etc. The contents are split into: Introduction, Container gardening, The small garden, Gardening through the year, Garden design, Glossary, and Index. I find the Garden design to be the most interesting.

Don''t let the size of the book intimidate. With such cheap prices on Amazon for used copies, it''s worth the shipping!

The graphics of the book were very beautiful and there was some info. on planting stratagies; mixing what types of plants with others; containers vr''s landscape; and color corodination. I must say all of this was very well done.

I really feel they could of done a more complete job if they had included information about the plants and their care. Then I would have been able to give it 5 ***** that this book certainly had potential for.

Wonderful pictures. For the price, you can''t beat the quality of this book. The information is given in short simple decriptions; you''re not going to learn to be a master gardener reading this book. It is as if you are peaking over a neighbor''s fence and sharing ideas. If you like to save seed catalogs because they are so pretty then you need this book.
