Barbara Pleasant

September 2005
Paperback

From Booklist
Even the most intrepid outdoor gardeners frequently admit that indoor plants under their care have an expected lifespan roughly equivalent to that of a mayfly. Whether one has just been given his or her first pot of grocery-store ivy or has been growing intricate bonsai for years, everything the indoor gardener could ever want to know about how to select, tend, and enjoy houseplants is contained in Pleasant's monumentally comprehensive yet straightforward and easy-to-follow encyclopedia covering more than 160 houseplants. Following an enlightening introduction that discusses the history, uses, and benefits that houseplants bestow, the manual is divided into three main sections. The first two are plant directories offering in-depth plant profiles of first flowering, then foliage, houseplants. The third is an extensive...

Book Review
Better Homes and Gardens's The New Grilling Book opens with an introduction offering good advice on grill types, fuel types, safety, and maintenance basics. The several hundred recipes include condiments, appetizers, main dishes, and desserts--all prepared right on the grill. Each recipe has specific directions for charcoal and gas grills, along with a chapter on smoke cooking. You'll find the usual suspects, with recipes for ribs, steaks, and vegetables, but there's some less-than-usual fare, including Polenta with Ratatouille and Banana-Chocolate Tiramisu. The photography, lightly peppered throughout, is quite striking, and the "Wise Advice" commentary includes great suggestions on picking the freshest seafoods and proper poultry handling, as well as ranking beef cuts by the most to the least tender.

From Publishers Weekly
Practicality and beauty come together in traditional kitchen gardens, where a little forethought and planning can turn the humblest of cabbage patches into a delight for the eye. Briefly tracing the history of horticultural design from ancient Roman times, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, when formal knot gardens and parterres flourished in Europe, through the lush Victorian carpet bedding, the Gertleys show how vegetable gardeners eager to raise their craft to a more ornamental level can poach traditional elements for their own backyard designs. From the tiniest of garden plots, such as a window box or container, to more expansive spaces, the authors provide instructions for achieving both "a visual feast and a surprising amount of produce at harvest time." Everything is here but the seeds?diagrams, plant...

Just as not all gardens are created equal, not all gardens are created outdoors.

McCreary offers 40 projects, from African violets tucked cunningly into a case suitable for a Victorian motif to succulent hens-and-chicks in a terra cotta tray reminiscent of the old Southwest, illustrating in each instance both the design principles and the gardening practices necessary to keep tabletop gardens in peak condition. Each project outlines the quantity and type of materials required, while detailed, step-by-step instructions guide the way to...

Simple Fountains for Indoors & Outdoors : 20 Step-By-Step Projects
Dorcas Adkins
1580171907
October 1, 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Few elements are as ubiquitous or as essential as water, or as appealing for the soothing sights and sounds with which it enhances our environment. Fountains are the ideal way to incorporate water's magic into our homes and gardens, and the fountain maker becomes something of an illusionist, striving emulate nature and to conceal the mechanics that make the perpetual flow of water possible.

Dorcas Adkins is certainly a magician when it comes to fountain design. Her wizardry encompasses bamboo, wood, ceramic, concrete, stone, and metal creations, from small tabletop delights to full-sized garden waterfalls. Her extremely thorough and well-diagrammed instructions make even the most complex projects approachable--and some of them are indeed fairly complex, involving woodworking skills, plaster and concrete casting, ceramic...

Book Review
Many books claim to be a "definitive guide"; this is one title that happily lives up to those claims--and then some. Encyclopedia of Gardening will become your indispensable how-to manual for any plant-related topic. Indoors or out, you'll find information on choosing and maintaining healthy plants of all varieties, how to build structures from greenhouses to trellises, ways to identify pests and diseases, and methods of garden design that enable you to turn your lawn into a unique and personal work of art.

The text is straightforward and accompanied at all points by close-up photos of techniques, ideas, and specimens. The handy glossary is ready with definitions for everything from bulblet to vermiculite, and two pages of seasonal reminders are a great quick-reference cheat sheet. Thanks to clear category separations...
