Reviews

"When it was first published, Tracy's book took the gardening world by storm. Undoubtedly, this new version will become indispensable, too." --Ruth Rogers Clausen, Essential Perennials

"This book encourages large, lush garden beds after determining soil types, moisture conditions, sunlight and shade, wind direction, and existing vegetation and structures. . . . The maintenance needs and planting and maintenance schedule sections that follow offer guidance not often found in gardening literature. . . . This third revised edition is worthy of purchase for its 50 new plants, including some native species important to pollinators and for human enjoyment." --Booklist

"There is no denying the excitement that the new edition of The Well-Tended Perennial Garden stirs in the hearts of gardeners and readers. This is a beautiful book, but more importantly it contains tested and true advice for home gardeners, both experienced and novice. . . . the perennial enthusiasts among us will find it difficult to resist adding this alluring incarnation to their home libraries." --NYBG's Plant Talk

"Techniques for maintaining perennials are thoroughly described at a level of detail that is hard to find elsewhere. . . .
