Who decides which plants are weeks? Why do North Americans insist on trying to grow a perfect lawn?
How can planting wildflowers contribute to a healthier, global environment?
The author provides insightful and thought-provoking answers to these and other questions in this book.
The book also celebrates the diversity of Ontario’s native plants and teaches gardeners how to break free from the endless weeding, watering and fertilizing problems of fussy exotic flora.
Readers will discover the benefits of native plant gardening such as attracting wildlife and recreating various habitats from prairie pockets to lush urban woodlands.
I loved books about gardening and nature. Whenever I see a book like this, I just grab it off the shelf. And the fact that it is written by a Canadian author is even more reason to read it.
I recommend this book to all nature lovers and those who think a well-quaffed lawn is the most important thing.
