  1. Giant Pumpkins

    WORLD CLASS GIANT PUMPKINS

    By Don Langevin. This is the forth book that Don has written on giant pumpkins. Here, Don takes a new, organic approach to growing them and also introduces the concept of the Soil Food Web for maximizing the potential of plants. He gives you a complete history of giant pumpkin growing since the rise in weights in 1857 and the modern history starting in 1976. The lineage of the Atlantic Giant Pumpkin, (which we sell) the only variety used by competitive pumpkin growers, is explored in a way that shows the genetics of the present day Atlantic Giant and also gives information on soil preparation, seed selection, seed starting, protection, critter control, pollination, insects and diseases, estimating weight, lifting and more. Since Langevins first book in 1993, the world record has gone from 827 pounds to 1689 pounds with more that 135 1300 pound pumpkins sanctioned at regional weigh offs. This book also includes many colorful photos of the pumpkins and the people who have grown them. Softcover 194 pp Learn More

  2. Wildlife Gardeners Guide

    WILDLIFE GARDENERS GUIDE

    by Janet Marinelli. This Brooklyn Botanic Garden Guide is just packed with specific suggestions for attracting wildlife in all regions of the country. The author says she found most wildlife gardening guides too general, so she developed 10 projects with step-by-step directions for each. They can be incorporated into existing gardens or started from scratch. The projects are: Bird Gardens, Stopover Gardens for Migrators, Evergreen Refuges, Flower Borders, Container Gardens for Wildlife, Butterfly Gardens, Water for Wildlife, Beneficial Insect Buffet, and Housing Projects. They focus on using native plants since wildlife have co-evolved with natives and are more attracted by them. Each plan lists plants for each region of the country. Superb color photos offer close-up views of the wonders of wildlife gardening. Softcover 119 pp. Learn More

  3. Water Gardens

    WATER GARDENS

    by Yvonne Rees and Neil Sutherland. Water gardens, once a rarity, are available to any energetic do-it-yourselfer. Materials can be obtained at most garden centers or around the house. We like this book because its 16 projects are on the simpler end of the water feature scale. Most are in containers - water gardens, bog gardens and fountains. Others involve adding novelty water features or a waterfall to the garden. The book also has much other useful information for water gardeners. It covers the basics such as styles, liners, edgings, and installing water pumps, filters, and fountains. It also has an extensive plant section beginning with waterlilies, other floaters, and oxygenators and spreading out to the marginal moisture loving plants that help fit the water garden in the landscape. Numerous color photos adorn each page. Hardcover 140pp pub at $22.95 Learn More

  9. The Winter Garden

    THE WINTER GARDEN

    by Jane Sterndale-Bennett. During the Victorian era many municipal authorities built huge ornamental conservatories as entertainment venues, and the term winter garden soon began to be applied to these mini palaces. Used for band concerts, dancing and other entertainments, they were filled with exotic plants, often richly scented. Public gardens now have more scope and many are planting special winter borders or entire gardens, no longer under glass, but part of the general garden landscape. With increasing numbers of ornamental plants introduced, we are able to do even more with our home gardens now. Some trees have interesting color and berries that will last throughout the winter. A variety of grasses, evergreens, and some persistent perennials will also give color and structure to your garden through these months. Soft cover 160 pp Pub at $19.95 Learn More
