Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

From a British gardening guru (Hessayon has written 17 Expert books) comes this taut program for gardening with less work. With highly organized graphics, including color-coded tips, charts, photos and four-color illustrations, and a direct, focused text, Hessayon tackles gardening according to four rudiments: appropriate site and soil; effortless plants (evergreens, shrubs and a few plants that require minimal dividing, deadheading, pruning); no bare ground (living groundcovers and mulch prevent weeds); and "hard" landscape design (lots of stone, brick, pebbles, bark). Clearly labeled illustrations and plant charts clarify advice about low-care lawns, trees, perennials, annuals, fruits, herbs and vegetables. Text-bytes treat everything from wasteful watering (too little too often) and prudent pruning (if in doubt, don't) to digging (do it once). Neither the anti-gardener's salvation ("the easy-care approach is not the same thing as neglect") nor the blissful gardener's delight, this volume will prove a helpful reference for the elderly, the infirm or injured, the busy and, yes, the lazy.

HASH(0xa2edfeac) out of 5 stars Good info on lawn shapes and care minimization Nov. 9 1999
By Anne V. Hamilton ( ( - Published on
Format: Paperback
Pitched to people with lazy English Sundays to tend roses and vegetables, the book is best on steps one can take to minimize maintenance. The English terminology used may not be familiar to U.S. readers and its plant recommendations do not necessarily cover the hardy plants bred here to withstand longer, hotter summers and harsher winters.
