Does anyone know of a good gardening book that has clear seedling pictures? I've got stuff coming up in my garden and would like to know if it's volunteer seedlings or weeds. I haven't come across a website with clear pictures and none of my books have seedling pictures either. Any advice?
I love Country Garden Magazine, Midwest Living and Garden Gate. I like to look at the gardens and dream.
My brother in Western New York had his garden chosen for "Best in Community" and he didn't even enter the contest. Master Gardners drive around his town and choose what they think is the best and he won. Pretty cool!
I will look for Fine Gardening/Fine Garden Design.
I have been gardening for over 15 years now and I must say I get the best information out of magazines and web pages. Some of my favorite magazines that you will find in on my coffee table are:
Sunset Magazine http://www.sunset.com/garden/
Southern Living Magazine http://www.southernliving.com/home-garde n/gardens/
Country Garden Magazine **** LOVE IT!!!! http://www.bhg.com
Fine Gardening / FINE Garden Design http://www.taunton.com/finegardening/
Garden Gate http://www.gardengatemagazine.com/
I have many gardening books that I have collected over the year. Everything from Martha Stewart to Better Homes and Garden. I like magazines better because the information is always changing in the garden world. Magazines and blogs usually are up to date.
Hope this helps!
IT all begins with YOU..... Plant the seeds and get growing healthy!
My current favorite is 'Encyclopedia of Plant Care' put out by Miracle Gro. It's a huge book and I think the price on the back was $40 but I got it on sale for $10 at Books A Million last fall. It's very comprehensive and covers everything from flowers to vegetables to trees to lawns.
I would love to hear some suggestions gardening books, either for vegetables, flowers, or anything that grows. I am trying to build my library, and I would like to have a few key books I can look to for a quick reference, to learn new ideas, or just to thumb through.
So I thought I'd start a thread to ask what is your favorite gardening book and why (if you want to explain).
