Dahlias: Beautiful Varieties for Home & Garden Lowest new price: $15.48
Lowest used price: $13.66
List price: $21.99
Author: Naomi Slade

Fall blooms for an explosion of color in the garden.


The dahlia is a fabulous cutting flower for the home garden. Cut one bloom, and ten more appear on the plant. Blooming late summer to the first frost of autumn, this native of Mexico provides explosions of color in home gardens. The author’s commentary unearths the dahlia from its Aztec origins and imparts practical, hands-on knowledge for growing and overwintering these tropical plants in wintry climes.


Including classics like Café au Lait and lesser-known varieties like Voodoo and Honka, readers will discover a stunning range of specimens from tiny pompoms to heavy-headed dinner plates, to those that resemble daisies, sea anemones, and even fireworks!

Dream Plants for the Natural Garden

Dream Plants for the Natural Garden Lowest new price: $18.07
Lowest used price: $20.20
List price: $29.95
Author: Piet Oudolf
Brand: imusti

A great source of reference for the natural gardener, this comprehensive compendium classifies 1200 plants according to their behaviour, strengths and uses. Join pioneering garden designers Henk Gerritsen and Piet Oudolf as they describe their ideal perennials, bulbs, grasses, ferns and small shrubs, explaining that an ideal plant is one that is both beautiful and robust, performing reliably with very little input from the gardener. Rather than striving for big, bold masses of colourful blooms that are vigorously pruned back as soon as they have finished flowering, their innovative approach to gardening involves choosing plants chiefly for their form - leaves, flower heads and stems included - which means they retain their natural beauty through all the seasons.
