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.
