  • GROW A LIVING WALL

    Make a beautiful, practical, environmentally conscious garden, even in a small space … grow UP with a living wall!

    A living wall is a vertical structure, usually outside the home, that is built with live plants growing in containers hung in a decorative arrangement.

    Sometimes called "Green Walls" and "Vertical Gardens," living walls are easier than ever to plan and grow! Grow a Living Wall is the first wall-gardening book to focus exclusively on the needs of home gardeners.

    Make your vertical garden environmentally friendly and sustainable. It's easy with author Shawna Coronado's help! One of her themed vertical gardens is stocked mostly with flowers to make it a haven for bees and other pollinators. Other gardens are filled with vegetables and herbs, so anyone with an outdoor wall can grow their own food … beautifully! Even more gardens promote aromatherapy or medicinal plants. Some are designed to provide a green net of air filtration near a living area, or to protect exterior walls from exposure to direct sunlight (which helps to keep the indoors cool).

    In addition to the comprehensive, step-by-step information that explains the basics of vertical gardening, each of the 20 featured gardens has its own chapter filled with useful tips, stunning photography and fascinating background stories that point out how much difference a small garden can make. The gardens you'll find in Grow a Living Wall are positive, life-affirming and sure to produce a smile or two.

  • GROW A SUSTAINABLE DIET

    Everyone loves to prepare a meal with ingredients fresh from their own garden. But for most of us, no matter how plentiful our harvest, homegrown produce comprises only a fraction of what we eat. And while many gardening guides will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about individual crops, few tackle the more involved task of helping you maximize the percentage of your diet you grow yourself.

    Grow a Sustainable Diet will help you develop a comprehensive, customized garden plan to produce the maximum number of calories and nutrients from any available space. Avoid arriving in August buried under a mountain of kale or zucchini (and not much else) by making thoughtful choices at the planning stage, focusing on dietary staples and key nutrients. Learn how to calculate:

    • Which food and cover crops are best for your specific requirements
    • How many seeds and plants of each variety you should sow
    • What and when to plant, harvest and replant for maximum yield
    Focusing on permaculture principles, biointensive gardening methods, getting food to the table with minimum fossil fuel input, and growing crops that sustain both you and your soil, this complete guide is a must-read for anyone working toward food self-sufficiency for themselves or their family.

Even when the solution is to do nothing-for instance, leaving some parts of a lawn un-mowed in order to save time and money while attracting local wildlife-Grow More with Less enables you to confidently make the call. With effective, time-proven recommendations like these, field-tested in a large botanical garden and adapted for home use by Simeone, Grow More with Less is your complete step-by-step personal roadmap for green gardening.
