Start Small, Grow Big With 150 Plants That Spread, Self-sow, and OverwinterBook - 2014
A bountiful garden is easy to create, and gardeners can save big by choosing plants that grow quickly and spread vigorously. The fragrant stems and dusty-blue flower spikes of anise hyssop will pop up throughout the garden when the plant goes to seed. A cascade of golden Japanese forest grass is a fast but well-contained spreader. And when you add frost-tender plants to the mix, you'll open the door to an even wider world of possibilities. This book is filled with a colorful palette of plants that self-sow, spread from their roots, and outlast our seasonal expectations. You'll find simple lessons on propagating and providing winter protection; learn how to strike the balance between letting surprises arise and taking creative control; and discover how much nature gives away for free.
