American Gardening by Monty Don, American Gardens Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download American Gardens books, Monty Don, Britain's treasured horticulturalist, explores iconic and little-known gardens throughout America. For decades, Britain's much-loved gardener Monty Don has been leading us down all kinds of garden paths to show us why green spaces are vital to our wellbeing and culture. Now, he travels across America to trace the fascinating histories of outdoor spaces which variously epitomize or redefine the American garden. Don looks at a huge variety of gardens and outdoor spaces at the center of American history from the White House Kitchen Garden and the garden at the British Embassy in DC, to the slave garden at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello estate and Middleton Place in South Carolina. On the West coast, he visits verdant oases designed by Richard Neutra, Charles Eames, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Don delves into contemporary interpretations of outdoor space, looking at how urban gardens such as New York City's High Line feed our souls, and how some can even feed our bodies - such as the Edible Schoolyard in San Francisco and guerrilla gardeners' urban farm in inner-city Detroit. The book also invites us to take a peek into the gardens of well-known figures such as Bette Midler, Lionel Richie, and Anna Wintour. Throughout the volume, celebrated photographer Derry Moore brings each of these gardens to life with splendid images that capture the settings' unique light, ambiance, and sense of space. Featuring luscious photography and Monty Don's engaging and informed commentary, this book will leave you with a richer understanding of how and why America's most important gardens came to be designed.

American Gardening by Carolyn Summers, Designing Gardens With Flora Of The American East Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Designing Gardens With Flora Of The American East books, Gardeners, with all good fortune and flora, are endowed with love for a hobby that has profound potential for positive change. The beautifully illustrated Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East approaches landscape design from an ecological perspective, encouraging professional horticulturalists and backyard enthusiasts alike to intensify their use of indigenous or native plants. These plants, ones that grow naturally in the same place in which they evolved, form the basis of the food web. Wildlife simply cannot continue to survive without them-nor can we. Why indigenous plants, you may ask? What makes them so special to butterflies and bees and boys and girls? For Carolyn Summers, the answer is as natural as an ephemeral spring wildflower or berries of the gray dogwood, "As I studied indigenous plants, a strange thing happened. The plants grew on me. I began to love the plants themselves for their own unique qualities, quite apart from their usefulness in providing food and shelter for wildlife. Emphasizing the importance of indigenous plant gardening and landscape design, Summers provides guidelines for skilled sowers and budding bloomers. She highlights . . . The best ways to use exotic and non-indigenous plants responsibly Easy-to-follow strategies for hosting wildlife in fields, forests, and gardens Designs for traditional gardens using native trees, shrubs, groundcovers as substitutes for exotic plants Examples of flourishing plant communities from freshwater streams to open meadows How to control plant reproduction, choose cultivars, open-pollinated indigenous plants, and different types of hybrids, and practice “safe sex in the garden From Maine to Kentucky and up and down the East Coast, Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East lays the "gardenwork" for protecting natural areas through the thoughtful planting of indigenous plants. Finally we can bask in the knowledge that it is possible to have loads of fun at the same time we are growing a better world.

America S Romance With The English Garden

American Gardening by Thomas J. Mickey, America S Romance With The English Garden Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download America S Romance With The English Garden books, The 1890s saw a revolution in advertising. Cheap paper, faster printing, rural mail delivery, railroad shipping, and chromolithography combined to pave the way for the first modern, mass-produced catalogs. The most prominent of these, reaching American households by the thousands, were seed and nursery catalogs with beautiful pictures of middle-class homes surrounded by sprawling lawns, exotic plants, and the latest garden accessories—in other words, the quintessential English-style garden. America’s Romance with the English Garden is the story of tastemakers and homemakers, of savvy businessmen and a growing American middle class eager to buy their products. It’s also the story of the beginnings of the modern garden industry, which seduced the masses with its images and fixed the English garden in the mind of the American consumer. Seed and nursery catalogs delivered aspirational images to front doorsteps from California to Maine, and the English garden became the look of America.
