Garden Forever
Book Reviews

As we find books on the market that help us all garden forever, we will review them here. We've started with one on dealing with allergies in the garden and another that takes a lighter look at gardening. Enjoy!

leafAllergy-Free Gardening

This important book allergy-ranks thousands of plants and includes zone maps, illustrations and lots of tips of cultural things to help reduce pollen and spores in the garden.

leafA Garden of Love & Healing Living Tributes to Those We Have Loved and Lost
by Marsha Olson, MA
"It is my hope that this book will help those who are suffering from loss and find a sense of connection to the greater power that infuses all life and to experience a profound healing beyond that of just 'getting back to normal. In a garden of love and healing, we can come to understand the paradox that, while we are of the earth, we are also part of something much, much larger." —Marsha Olson, author

Gardening is sometimes such a serious business but David Hobson shows the lighter side and helps us laugh at the often obsessive behaviour that gardeners exhibit.
