About this title


The Bottom Line Jerry Baker is not only a plant doctor, but also has a keen eye for what makes a landscape beautiful. In fact, it is the latter aspect of his work that makes Plants Are Still Like People most enjoyable. Pros each chapter ends with a practical Q&A provides numerous useful lists Cons a bit preachy in places Description Reading "germination labels" when buying grass seed: germination and purity should be close to 100%. Don't let blooms die on your shrubs: "a dying bloom takes too much from the rest of the plant." In rooms where houseplants grow, paint walls bright colors: "These colors will reflect more light". Measuring how deeply your lawn is being watered by a sprinkler: catch some of the water in a can. Edging makes a garden "look neat and as though it were designed to fit into the overall landscape." A hole is not just a hole -- or "how to plant trees properly."
