Whoever coined the phrase “money doesn’t grow on trees” must not have been a resourceful gardener. While we may not be able to harvest physical money, with the right plants and techniques gardeners can rely on nature to give itself away for free. Plantiful shows you how to have an easy, gorgeous garden packed with plants by simply making the right choices. Kristen Green highlights plants that help a garden quickly grow by self-sowing and spreading and teaches you how to expand the garden and extend the life of a plant by overwintering. The book features plant profiles for 50 self-sowers (including columbine, milkweed, and foxglove), 50 spreaders (such as clematis, snow poppy, and spearmint), and 50 plants that overwinter (including lemon verbena, begonia, and Chinese hibiscus). moreMore Info | Google Books | Check Availability
