Perennial gardening - stunning garden for ever!

‘Perennial Gardening’ by Susan Hollister is a worth to read guide about many different kind of bulbs, flowers, herbs and vegetables. They are very valuable plants but also need to be properly maintained. Susan shows how to looking after your plants to have wonderful garden year by year.
I especially love hostas with beautiful, rich leaves but I just hate when slugs eaten them. I don’t try to spread sand around it, but it looks simple and more natural than blue pellets that I really afraid because kids and animals can accidentally taste.
Also I never know that I shouldn’t cut dried steams of tulips as they may never grow again.So I won’t do it anymore.
Susan gives very practical advices also what to do with perennial herbs, how to cut them and what are they favourite position. I love natural medicine so always have herbs in my garden but sometimes they just too poor and have insects on them. I am looking for more audiobooks by Susan Hollister about gardening and how to naturally prevent plants from aphides, slugs and others insects.
I just can’t wait for spring time to prepare my garden that will be even more excited with Susan’s audio book that are well-narrated.

Dreaming of Perennials

Where I'm living, it's winter now, the perfect time to plan next year's perennial garden. I loved listening to this book, with its down-to-earth assessment of the different types of beds and clear descriptions of the conditions under which each plant will thrive. I'm now well prepared to prevent damage from pests and ward off blight. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the names and characteristics of each plant. I like how the book is grouped by type of plant; it makes is so much easier to get to know how to take care of them! Well read!
