Gardening can be good for your budget

One of the great things about my new book is the low price.   I’ve heard from a lot of people already who’ve told me that they are thrilled this book costs less than $12 at  Click here! The plants covered in the book include perennials, native plants, trees, and shrubs that are easy to grow, and because they are virtually indestructible, they are a great value.   How about that….a book that is inexpensive and plants that are nearly impossible to kill…great way to save!     Best of all, all of the plants I cover in the book adhere to my organic gardening approach and  a lot can work in small space or container gardens.    In this economy, we’re all trying to stretch our dollars, yet keep beauty in our lives.   I wrote the new book to help you do that.

Hi!  I’m excited to let you know I have a new book being released in January 2009 titled 50 High-Impact, Low-Care Garden Plants: Tough But Beautiful Plants that Anyone Can Grow. I think it will be useful for all of us with busy lives seeking dynamic, outstanding plants that are also low care. Many are deer, pest and insect resistant, drought tolerant, long lived, they don’t require frequent pruning, daily deadheading, fertilizing, regular division or staking.
