Gardener’s Guide to Compact Plants by Jessica Walliser

Gardener’s Guide to Compact Plants: Edibles and Ornamentals for Small-Space Gardening by Jessica Walliser
Requirements: EPUB Reader 39.56 MB
Overview: Covering a broad array of landscape plants, including edibles, flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs, evergreens, and perennials, horticulturist Jessica Walliser takes a deep dive into the emerging category of compact plants.
Whether short, narrow, columnar, or dwarf, this new and exciting group of plants provides the same decorative function as full-sized ornamental plants, but in a fraction of the space. Plus, edible compact plants offer comparable productivity, without having to add moresquare footage to the garden.
In this comprehensive guide, Jessica uses her numerous contacts in the seed and plant production world to give space-challenged gardeners a heads up on what’s new, as well as re-introducing a few traditional small-footprint favorites.
In both urban and suburban neighborhoods, yards are shrinking, and big plants and gardens require too much maintenance for today’s time-starved homeowners. If you’re searching for plants that require less space and reduced day-to-day maintenance, dwarf shrubs and other compact plants to the rescue! With little to no pruning required, columnar trees, dwarf shrubs, mini veggies, short-statured perennials, and other compact plants fill a much-needed niche.
In the Gardener’s Guide to Compact Plants, you’ll discover fantastic, brand new dwarf and compact plant varieties you didn’t even know existed. And, you’ll learn how to grow more flowers, fruits, and veggies than ever before, no matter how much-or how little-space you have. It’s the perfect book for homeowners with small yards, urban gardeners, container growers, or anyone looking to grow a beautiful and productive small-scale garden.

I Work Like a Gardener by Miró (Miro)
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.5 MB
Overview: In 1958, artist Joan Miró and critic Yvon Taillandier sat down for an in-depth discussion on Miró’s life and work. Their conversation, one of the most illuminating and insightful looks into Miró’s philosophy and creative process, was first published in a limited edition of seventy five copies in 1964. Though long out of print, this bilingual "treasure," in the words of Maria Popova, "remains the most direct and comprehensive record of Miró’s ideas on art." This beautiful new edition presents an updated English translation of Miró’s invaluable text in an elegant and striking package. In addition to Taillandier’s original foreword, a new preface by preeminent Miró scholar Robert Lubar provides wider context and insight. An appendix includes the original French text in its entirety. Joan Miró: I Work Like a Gardener brings to life the words and work of one of the most beloved and influential artists of the twentieth century.
