In the Western Garden The 20-Minute Gardener learn the secret to achieving a beautiful garden with minimum effort, paying attention to it in brief time increments all week and season long rather than devoting long days on weekends. Make the process fun. Take an early-morning stroll through your garden, picking off spent blooms as you go, or in the evening after work; pull stray weeds or harvest tomatoes for dinner. This informative guide helps seasoned and new gardeners alike plan easy-to-tend garden spaces, choose low-maintenance plants, grow edibles that keep on giving (artichokes, asparagus, blueberries, citrus) and monitor your plants daily rather than weekly. With garden techniques and projects you will find all the tips and step-by-step instruction needed to create a stylish yet easy-to-maintain outdoor space.
