Gardening Books

Use garden books to expand your knowledge about growing plants. Practical books that show you how to grow specific plants step by step make starting a garden easy. Stock up on reference books that cover specific areas of horticulture and create a comprehensive gardening library.

Learn to Garden
Whether you're creating a small home garden for personal use, planning a landscape for a client's corporate campus, or investigating urban gardening as a side gig, gardening books teach you the skills you need to succeed. Basic gardening books show you the basics of seed starting, garden design, and successful growing, while more advanced texts offer tips to improve your yield and help you grow specialty plants that require more intensive care. Books about growing trees and shrubs help you complete your yard.

Get Inspired
Get inspired to create the garden of your dreams with gardening books that show off famous gardens around the world. Explore well-known gardens in detail through photographs and text that describes the specific bulbs and seeds that were used to grow gorgeous flowers and plants, and then recreate similar designs in your own yard. Books about garden travel make excellent gifts for friends and colleagues, or you can leave them out on a table to entertain guests in your waiting room or lobby.

Focus on Specific Plants
Gardening books that focus on a specific species let you delve deeply into the history, care, and features of that particular plant. From agaves to orchids, specialty plants can help you create a unique section of your garden or conservatory that embodies particular characteristics and draws admiring visitors. Alternately, use books about attracting butterflies or beneficial insects to your garden to decide on the perfect combination of plants for your yard.
