Gardening Books

Books on gardening can inspire us and provide us with useful information. Even with so much available online, I still refer to certain books often. I depend on Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Perennials by E. Phillips and C. Burrell. Next to photos in the book, I write notes on when and where I've planted a particular species. If you don't keep a garden log, perhaps you'll find it easier to jot down notes in a gardening book.

Another reference book is Better Homes and Gardens Complete Guide to Flower Gardening. There are also guides available for vegetable gardening, flower arranging and many other topics. Some books contain many photos of beautiful gardens in this country and around the world. The library also has many books on the practical aspects of gardening. So during these cold winter months, I hope you'll pick up a book or two and dream about the start of gardening season.
