Synopsis:

Few gardens have perfect growing conditions. Invariably there is a corner that is too shady, windy or dry. The solution: a tough plant! One that will shrug off the worst conditions, often thrive despite them.

Tough Plants is an easy-to-use, fully illustrated guide to more than 100 virtually unkillable plants for the garden -- whatever the growing conditions. The extended back flap of the book can be used as a quick reference to identify the symbols used throughout the book, identifying whether a plant is ideally suited for a particular situation, microclimate, or soil type.

The book features:

  • An extensive directory with more than 100 plants chosen for their ability to survive difficult conditions, while adding beauty and color to the garden
  • Assessing and improving a garden
  • Matching plants to garden conditions
  • Understanding soil and microclimates created by sun, shade, and wind
  • Caring for plants in tough situations
  • Suggestions on where, how and what to plant
  • Dealing with damp or dry conditions, sun or shade
  • Practical tips on getting started, planting, routine care, and weed control.

About the Author:

Sharon Amos is an author and freelance journalist specializing in gardening. Her previous books include Celebrations, Garden Wisdom, Pulbrook and Gould Flowers and Plants for Free.
