The Well-Tended Perennial Garden: Planting and Pruning Techniques, by Tracy DiSabato-Aust

By chance I discovered the expanded edition of this title in our New Books section when we were in the midst of a front-yard planting project.  As a beginning gardener, I found the planting and pruning advice clear and very helpful, and in gathering ideas, I appreciated the examples of gardens designed by the author.  But the book also has plenty of more advanced information for the experienced gardener.  The central section of the book contains a perennial encyclopedia with beautiful photographs, and the appendices include planting and maintenance schedules, and lists of perennials for specific pruning and maintenance requirements.  (If you buy the book, there’s also a section in the back to create a maintenance journal for your own garden.)

Rating: ****A very good read
