Autorenkommentar

For those with more to do than weed the garden
I'm as time-starved as the rest of the world, a professional Celtic harper, gardener and writer with two kids. I fall in love with almost every plant I meet, but living together's not always possible. Most of the time, my garden's on its own.

Sharing what I've learned about simple, easy gardening, as I've done in this book, is a joy for me, both fun and instructive. I always teach myself as well as my readers.

And gardening can be easy, with the right approach and a little work at the beginning. Fledgling landscapes are like other baby birds - they need care for a while, then they can fly on their own.

More than anything else, we all need to take the pyramid of "least time planning, less time planting and most time maintaining" and tip it upside down. If we want to spend minutes a month weeding, then we have to spend some hours on initial planning.

The hardest part of lazy gardening, the qualities I find hardest to cultivate myself, are self-control and patience. Even now, when I walk into a nursery, some treasure will catch me, demanding to come home and live with me even though I know I just don't have the right place for it yet. But I'm learning to value my spare time as much as the plants that tempt me.

May this book guide you toward many hours of sitting on the lawn or in a comfortable chair, admiring the self-reliant landscape surrounding you, the birds, the butterflies and, most of all, the beauty you've always longed for. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
The Lazy Gardener is full of common sense (or good sense - maybe it's not so common) about how to get plants to grow themselves in your yard. Its main emphasis is on working with what you've got and having time to enjoy it, instead of doing battle with it.
The Lazy Gardener helps you find plants you really like which will grow happily within the constraints you have. It helps you take an honest look at the time and tedium costs of the choices you make, as well as the enjoyment they will give you.
It talks about the whole garden space as well as plant choices - what sort of things to consider to make it your space, one you particularly like. It emphasizes getting pleasure out of your garden. It discusses how to structure the work of building a garden so that it stays rewarding, making it more likely that you'll keep going.
In all ways, the book helps you figure out how to make the garden that's best for you, with your yard, your time, your likes and dislikes, your dirt, water, sun, etc.
The Lazy Gardener is also a pleasure to read, a little new-agey in places, but full of wit and sprinkled with wry comments about the gardening "establishment". I am here at Amazon to buy 4 or 5 copies as Christmas presents.

Format: Taschenbuch
Since I don't have much time or patience for gardening, I've never really ventured into planting a full-fledged garden. This book actually makes it seem feasible. It gave me a number of hints and ideas of how to do it, and what to plant in it, so that I can have a good-looking garden without having to spend my life taking care of it!

The Lazy Gardener is a book that should be helpful to beginning gardeners, but also to experienced gardeners. The writer's approach to gardening is refreshing and different, yet the book is packed with information. It's a book I'm sure I will refer to often.
