Review:

"A delightful new book. . . filled with gardening tips and inspiring color photos of plants and gardens." --Orange County Register

From the Back Cover:

"The most satisfied gardeners I've ever known were also the most fearless. Kristin Green teaches readers how to garden fearlessly through the lens of her own passion and encyclopedic knowledge." --Andrew Keys, author of Why Grow That When You Can Grow This?

A bountiful garden is easy to create, and gardeners can save big, by choosing plants that grow quickly and spread vigorously. The fragrant stems and dusty-blue flower spikes of anise hyssop will pop up throughout the garden when the plant goes to seed. A cascade of golden Japanese forest grass is a fast but well-contained spreader. And when you add frost-tender plants to the mix (try asparagus fern with its lime green tentacles), you'll open the garden door to an even wider world of possibilities.

Kristin Green--horticulturist at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum--has filled her gardens and this book with a colorful palette of plants that self-sow, spread from their roots, and outlast our seasonal expectations. You'll find simple lessons on propagating and providing winter protection; learn how to strike the balance between letting surprises arise and taking creative control; and discover how much nature gives away for free.

The tools and ideas presented will jumpstart your confidence and help you appreciate plants with exuberant growth habits. The result is a plantiful garden: wildly interesting, personally gratifying, and more fun day by day and season after season.
