January is a great time for reading...

Were there any gardening books under your tree? Are there any on your library shelf that you haven’t looked at in the past year? With little to do in the garden, January is the perfect time to catch up on your horticultural reading. One great book to look for is Garden Revolution by Larry Weaner, subtitled, ‘How our landscapes can be a source of environmental change'.  In the book, he tells how his one-third acre near Philadelphia has been transformed into a wildlife habitat with wonderful sites for humans to relax on... like a patio near flowers, colorful shrubs and trees where birds and other wildlife are attracted. He encourages us to work with nature rather than against it. For everyone who wants Mother Nature to do more of the work, Weaner offers well-written and practical advice.
