Staff Reviews

Plantiful is a study in horticultural abundance.  If you
want to establish your garden quickly, if you're gardening on a budget,
or if you just want to have plenty to share with friends, this book is
exactly what you're looking for.

— From Plantiful, by Kristin Green


“Thrifty gardeners take note: the bucks saved on plant purchases will pay back the purchase price of Plantiful with dividends.” —Tovah Martin, author of The Unexpected Houseplant

Whoever coined the phrase “money doesn’t grow on trees” must not have been a resourceful gardener. Plantiful shows you how to have an easy, gorgeous garden packed with plants by simply making the right choices. Kristen Green highlights plants that help a garden quickly grow by self-sowing and spreading and teaches you how to expand the garden and extend the life of a plant by overwintering. The book features plant profiles for 50 self-sowers (including columbine, milkweed, and foxglove), 50 spreaders (such as clematis, snow poppy, and spearmint), and 50 plants that overwinter (including lemon verbena, begonia, and Chinese hibiscus). Additional gardening tips, design ideas, and inspirational photos will motivate and inspire gardeners of all levels.
