The Gardens of Two Sisters
Here is a unique twist to the ever-popular theme of gardening. In this delightfully chatty book, two sisters, one in Georgia & one in New Jersey, share their gardening experience through the course of a year. In THE GARDENS OF TWO SISTERS you will find choice entries from the sisters' garden journals & lists of their preferred annuals & perennials. You will also find "how-to" information covering a wide variety of topics: from choosing the best mulch to planting spring bulbs, from making compost to constructing Christmas greenery wreaths. As an added bonus, lovely, full-color pictures taken by the sisters in their own gardens during each season enhance the text. Throughout the book there is an informality that makes the reader feel comfortable; one has the sense of participating in a private conversation with the sisters. Both seasoned & beginning gardeners will appreciate this down-to-earth approach to gardening. Barrie Crawford is the author of FOR THE LOVE OF WILDFLOWERS published in 1985. Both sisters are members of the Garden Writers Association & the American Horticultural Society. Ordering information for THE GARDENS OF TWO SISTERS: BUCKEYE PRESS, P.O. Box 151, Hamilton, GA 31811.
