In addition to the gardenening books I already have on my shelf, I am getting ready to add the following. Getting each for 1 credit is a deal.

British and American Gardens in the 18th Century.

The Secret Garden: Dawn to Dusk in the Astonishing Hidden World of the Garden

The Moonlit Garden (great when you're mainly home at night!)

As is the Evening Garden: Flowers and fragrance from Dusk Until Dawn.

Boxwood Handbook: A Practical Guide to Knowing and Growing Boxwood

Culinary Herbs

The Environmental Gardener

An Introduction to Soil Science

Truly Tiny Gardens (great if you have little space. great if you are doing garden "rooms," or just trying to carve yourself out an oasis.

The Gardener's Companion (hardcover in a calendar format with pictures, advice, plant suggestions. It is very pretty, and in a giftable condition. Was a giftt to me, but I am never going to be that kind of gardener, writing when the saffron crocuses bloomed and when I put in the snow peas. Though I do like to read about them!)

I am sorry. I should have put this in the Bazaar. I added more, but I will try to keep the ones listed here updated.

Okay. Folks are saying they are glad I put these here because they don't requent the Bazaar. I will add the others. Later I will redeem myself by talking about the gems I cannot give up! Jekyll, Thomas, Flowerdew, etc.

Topiary and the Art of training Plants. Too bad there's no photo because this is a really beautiful book.

The Earth Shall Blossom: Shaker herbs and Gardening.

The Bird Lover's Garden (again, another really nice book. BUT I am have over 25 feet of shelving stuffed with gardening books, so I am trying to be ruthless! It's hard, but I will be slowly adding to this post as I give them up. I probably should list them on amazon, but I really like these books, so who knows who will get them if I send them out in the cold world.)

The Complete Guide to North American Gardens: The Northeast

Greenhouses and Garden Rooms (Plants & Gardens, Brooklyn Botanic Garden Record)

Herbs and Cooking  (a gardening book really from Brooklyn Botanic garden)

Simon Schuster's Guide to Garden Flowers
