Gardeners know how helpful it is to be aware of what is happening in the garden from year to year – what germinates, flowers or fruits and when; how the weather affects flowering and fruiting seasons and harvests; issues with pests and so much more. A Gardener's Five Year Record Book from the RHS makes it easy to record what happens in the garden over a five-year period. Structured week by week, with five years to a view, it is flexible enough for the user to choose a personal emphasis if desired. There are additional sections on Plants to Buy, Plant Suppliers, Useful Addresses and Gardens to Visit so essential information is all in one place. Illustrated with works of art from the RHS Lindley Libraries.

The ultimate source for everything you need to know about soil, plants, and pests - your own garden! Gardening is many things to many people. Whether you are growing potatoes, hostas or roses it is a pastime that has one common theme: trial-and-error. With every passing season gardeners discover new plants that work beautifully and also must resign themselves to admitting that others just will not flourish in their garden. They encounter new pests and strange diseases and discover clear ways to combat them. They observe weather patterns and make subtle conclusions about their soil and which fertilizers give the biggest boost. And, too often, they forget. The Garden Journal offers a solution, a journal where the fruits of each season of trial-and-error can be recorded to get a head start on next year. Garden Journal is divided into seven chapters that help you organize your gardening adventure for easy reference and prompt you to consider your successes and failures in a helpful way. It features well-chosen tips and suggestions to help you improve your gardening knowledge and success. It also includes two sturdy envelopes permanently affixed to the back cover so you can store seeds packets, markers, and even a dead bug or two for future reference. Bound in tough and washable leatherette, this garden journal is ready and waiting to accompany you right out into the field so you can make your entries right where it counts - even if your hands are a bit dirty!

Gardening can be frustratingly shrouded in secrecy. Fickle plants make seemingly spontaneous decisions to bloom or bust, seeds sprout magically in the blink of an eye, and deep-rooted mysteries unfold underground and out of sight. Understanding basic botany is like unlocking a horticultural code; fortunately learning a little science can reveal the secrets of the botanical universe and shed some light on what’s really going on in your garden. Practical Botany for Gardeners provides an elegant and accessible introduction to the world of botany. It presents the essentials that every gardener needs to know, connecting explanations of scientific facts with useful gardening tips. Flip to the roots section and you’ll not only learn how different types of roots support a plant but also find that adding fungi to soil aids growth. The pruning section both defines “lateral buds” and explains how far back on a shoot to cut in order to propagate them. The book breaks down key areas and terminology with easy-to-navigate chapters arranged by theme, such as plant types, plant parts, inner workings, and external factors. “Great Botanists” and “Botany in Action” boxes delve deeper into the fascinating byways of plant science. This multifaceted book also includes two hundred botanical illustrations and basic diagrams that hearken to the classic roots of botany. Part handbook, part reference, Practical Botany for Gardeners is a beautifully captivating read. It’s a must for garden lovers and backyard botanists who want to grow and nurture their own plant knowledge.

Like heirloom seeds and grafts from trees, advice from great gardeners handed down through the centuries has shaped the science and art of gardens across the globe. Spanning gardeners from fifteenth-century Japan to the contemporary United States, Lessons from the Great Gardeners profiles forty groundbreaking botanists, nurserymen, and tillers of earth, men and women whose passion, innovation, and green thumbs endure in the formal landscapes and vegetable patches of today. Entries for each gardening great highlight their iconic plants and garden designs, revealing both the gardeners’ own influences and the seeds—sometimes literal—that they sowed for gardens yet to sprout. From André Le Nôtre in seventeenth-century France, who drew on his training as an architect and hydraulic engineer to bring the topiary form to Vaux-le-Vicomte and Versailles, to the work of High Line and Lurie Garden designer Piet Oudolf, and Thomas Jefferson’s advice on creating protected garden microclimates for help growing early crops and tender fruit like figs (with peas, a Jefferson favorite), Lessons from the Great Gardeners is a resource as rich as the soil from which it springs. Featuring lush illustrations harvested from the archives of the Royal Horticultural Society, as well as sections on a dozen international gardens that showcase the lessons of the greats, this homage to the love of good, clean dirt is sure to inspire readers to get out in the sun and dig.
