Gardening for a Lifetime: How to Garden Wiser as You Grow Older

By Sydney Eddison
As time passes and we age, tasks like gardening become more physically challenging. But the thought of giving it up is unthinkable. With 48 years of experience, Eddison is determined to continue her passion as her garden is a place of joy, safety, and comfort. She shares her personal experience of simpler ways to garden by providing a realistic, encouraging approach for scaling back while keeping up with the gardening activities that each gardener loves most. She writes about replacing demanding plants with sturdy, relatively carefree perennials. Living in harmony with the surrounding woodlands using nature as a foundation for a garden. Planting in containers to ease the heavy labor of in-ground gardening while providing the same pleasure. Hiring help (another pair of hands) even for a few hours a week. This new edition features an additional chapter describing how Eddison’s struggles with hip and back problems forced her to walk the walk. An ideal book for older gardeners, but resourceful for younger ones with demanding lives too.

    Well, this was not the type book I was expecting. When you say garden in my area of the world, you mean a vegetable garden, not a flower garden. There is no mention anywhere that this is about a flower garden until you start to read the first page. this disappoints me to be mislead. However, I did glean some ideas that I could apply to my vegetable garden.
