The Gardener Primer
The Gardener Primer (Workman Publishing, 2008, $19) is a completely revised edition of Barbara Damrosch's bestseller that was introduced 20 years ago. It is still a popular resource and is now completely organic in its theme. You'll find her down-to-earth approach and wonderful drawings helpful. The 26-page Appendix provides a comprehensive list of plant societies, including those geared toward native plants. You'll find inspiration and general gardening advice throughout this book. Add to that a workable index and it becomes one of the most useful books for any serious gardener. .
