Redwoods and Roses - The Gardening Heritage of California (Paperback): Maureen Gilmer Redwoods and Roses - The Gardening Heritage of California (Paperback)

Redwoods and Roses explores the special relationship California's diverse peoples have shared with nature and the unique gardens and landscapes they have created over the years to nurture and enhance those bonds. From pre-colonial times to the Victorian era, California gardening expert Maureen Gilmer brings this garden history to life, showing how the gardens and landscapes were created and profiling the heirloom plants within them. But Redwoods and Roses is more than a book on gardening history. Here, the reader will discover how to recreate period designs in her own garden, from making a no-fuss adobe-look wall from the Mission era to finding heirloom plants for a cottage garden. Redwoods and Roses is a blend of natural history, California history, plants profiles, landscaping tips, and sensible garden advice, as well as an eloquent plea for the preservation of many remarkable plants.

R578 R538 Discovery Miles 5 380 Save R40 (7%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

With food costs on the rise, people are turning to their own backyards for affordable and delicious produce. Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida helps amateur gardeners get closer to their food and save money. It is also an invaluable guide for small farmers who wish to expand their operations in order to participate in farmers markets or CSAs. Experts Ginny Stibolt and Melissa Contreras provide simple and accessible advice for successful, pesticide-free vegetable gardening in Florida, where soil types vary and mild winters do not clear out all pests. They offer suggestions for opportunities beyond the home garden, advice on what to do with over-abundant harvests, and strategies for developing a community garden. Stibolt and Contreras also address pest management, appropriate bed types, irrigation, seed saving, proper harvesting, and food safety. Organic Methods for Vegetable Gardening in Florida arranges plants by family to help growers design their crop rotation schemes and features some unconventional but robust Florida native plants that are suitable to grow alongside traditional vegetables, such as meadow garlic, tomatillos, Seminole pumpkin, spotted horsemint, jicama, and prickly pear.

Letter to a Young Farmer - How to Live Richly without Wealth on the New Garden Farm (Paperback): Gene Logsdon Letter to a Young Farmer - How to Live Richly without Wealth on the New Garden Farm (Paperback)
Gene Logsdon
R368 R279 Discovery Miles 2 790 Save R89 (24%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

For more than four decades, the self-described contrary farmer and writer Gene Logsdon has commented on the state of American agriculture. In Letter to a Young Farmer, his final book of essays, Logsdon addresses the next generation young people who are moving back to the land to enjoy a better way of life as small-scale garden farmers. It s a lifestyle that isn t defined by accumulating wealth or by the get big or get out agribusiness mindset. Instead, it s one that recognises the beauty of nature, cherishes the land, respects our fellow creatures, and values rural traditions. It s one that also looks forward and embraces right technologies, including new and innovative ways of working smarter, not harder, and avoiding premature burnout. Completed only a few weeks before the author s death, Letter to a Young Farmer is a remarkable testament to the life and wisdom of one of the greatest rural philosophers and writers of our time. Gene s earthy wit and sometimes irreverent humor combines with his valuable perspectives on many wide-ranging subjects everything from how to show a ram who s boss to enjoying the almost churchlike calmness of a well-built livestock barn. Reading this book is like sitting down on the porch with a neighbor who has learned the ways of farming through years of long observation and practice. Someone, in short, who has seen it all and has much to say, and much to teach us, if we only take the time to listen and learn. And Gene Logsdon was the best kind of teacher: equal parts storyteller, idealist, and rabble-rouser. His vision of a nation filled with garden farmers, based in cities, towns, and countrysides, will resonate with many people, both young and old, who long to create a more sustainable, meaningful life for themselves and a better world for all of us.

You can start planting beets, carrots, chard, kale, parsnips. And spinach for an early fall harvest.

R354 R302 Discovery Miles 3 020 Save R52 (15%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Ever since she was old enough to help her grandmother in the garden, Sharon Lovejoy has spent her life working with plants--and along the way, through "trowel and error," she's accumulated hundreds and hundreds of remedies, tips, short-cuts, and cure-alls. Now Ms. Lovejoy--author of "Roots, Shoots, Buckets & Boots" and the award-winning "Sunflower Houses"--does for the garden what Heloise or the Queen of Clean does for the household. "Trowel and Error" collects all of her homespun garden advice into an inviting, environmentally friendly, whimsically illustrated yet dead-on helpful book that will benefit every gardener, beginner or experienced.
Cure plant viruses with spoiled milk. Steep a natural and effective insecticide out of fresh basil. Place flat stones under squash or melons to hasten ripening. Recycle an old apple corer as the perfect dibber for muscari and other small bulbs. Start rosemary cuttings in a green glass bottle. Sprinkle baby powder over seedlings to discourage rabbits. Crush a garlic clove and apply it to your skin as an insect repellent. From urging the reader to take an occasional shower with the houseplants to giving all-natural gardenside first aid, "Trowel and Error" is a direct line to the kind of practical wisdom that comes only after a lifetime of experience. The book is indexed by problem, plant, pest, and solution, and includes a list of tools and common household items--borax, cornmeal, vinegar--that completes the gardener's arsenal.
