About Book

Book Description
Love of flowers and all things green and growing is with many men and women a passion so strong that it often seems to be a sort of primal instinct. So writes Helena Rutherford Ely in this engaging book on hardy flowers that is both instructional and charming to read. Chapters include instruction on how to prepare the soil, design a garden, and plant a small plot. The middle section of the book includes detailed information on annuals and perennials and other flowers, all of which are lovingly and thoroughly described. And the final part includes accents that can further enhance the beauty of the garden--water, walks, sundials, and others.

From the Back Cover
"Through trials and tribulations and hardly learned patience, I have gained some of the secrets of many of our best hardy flowering plants and shrubs. Many friends have asked me to tell them when to plant or transplant, when to sow this or that seed, and how to prepare the beds and borders; in fact, this has occurred so often that it has long been in my mind to write down what I know of hardy gardening, that other women might be helped to avoid the experiments and mistakes I have made, which only served to cause delay." This is how Helena Rutherfurd Ely introduces A Woman's Hardy Garden, and what better reason to write - or read - a book? Those experiments and mistakes resulted in detailed advice on everything from soil preparation to garden design, all imparted with a charming style that's at once assertive and self-deprecating - a style that is the hallmark of the true expert.
