A plan for creating a garden that is both alluring to beneficial native wildlife and aesthetically pleasing to the gardenerFrom Library Journal:
Plenty of books have been published in recent years about how to design gardens to attract and sustain desirable wildlife. Seidenberg (The New Orleans Garden: Gardening in the Gulf South, Univ. Pr. of Mississippi, 1993) herself reprints so much information from other sources that her book functions as a review of the current literature. The contrast between the factual, quoted material and her own breathless style makes for choppy reading. However, there is a wealth of material here that should be especially valuable for gardeners in the lower South. Nowhere else does one find such detailed lists of the fauna supported by specific native and garden plants. Seidenberg also explains how to use organic gardening and ecological principles to create a thriving mini-ecosystem, but she soft-pedals the problem of convincing neighbors that your meadow garden is more than an untended lot. A worthy choice for gardening collections in her region; an optional purchase elsewhere.?Beth Clewis Crim, Prince William P.L., Va.
