One needs to laugh in order to garden! As a life-long gardener, it is nice to have a great book like this to refresh my gardening pores. All of the advice is sound and holistic. As I live in a very harsh climate, I need to interpret gardening advice to fit my life – just like all of you! This book definitely has the structure for tending perennials – just adapt it for your situations. One of the best pieces of advice is to mimic nature in your area – if God planted it here in nature, it is sure to thrive in your yard! Many of her mulching techniques are very adaptable for maintaining gardens in times of drought and harsh winters. I also enjoy her idea of pest control through predatory insects. I do wish she had a chapter on planting for pollinators and butterflies – 2 areas of environmental concern that are attractively addressed by perennials. This book is great for novice through expert; both as reference and instruction. This will be on my 'keeper' shelf. I know I will read it again in the dark of winter. Enjoy!

    Perennial Classics is good, solid introduction to growing perennial landscaping plants. While the author's advice for timing is based on her location in Missouri, it will work (with some tweaking to take into account local conditions) eastward in a band 75-100 miles high covering the south portion of Illinois to southern Ohio south to northern Mississippi to northern Georgia.

While the author's advice for timing is based on her location in Missouri, it will work (with some tweaking to take into account local conditions) eastward in a band 75-100 miles high covering the south portion of Illinois to southern Ohio south to northern Mississippi to northern Georgia. She provides suggestions to enter into the perennial venture with as little pain as possible including chapters on planning and a garden activity monthly calendar. Chapters are provided for general care and specific care for some groups of plants. Pen and ink drawing reproductions from old seed and plant catalogs are sprinkled throughout. Previews of several of her other books are included at the end.
