Covering a broad array of landscape plants, including edibles, flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs, evergreens, and perennials, horticulturist Jessica Walliser takes a deep dive into the emerging category of compact plants.
In both urban and suburban neighbourhoods, gardens are shrinking, and big plants and gardens require too much maintenance for today's time-starved homeowners. If you're searching for plants that require less space and reduced day-to-day maintenance, dwarf shrubs and other compact plants to the rescue! With little to no pruning required, columnar trees, dwarf shrubs, mini veggies, short-statured perennials, and other compact plants fill a much-needed niche.
In the Gardener's Guide to Compact Plants, you'll learn how to grow more flowers, fruits, and veggies than ever before, no matter how much, or how little space you have. It's the perfect book for homeowners with small gardens, urban gardeners, container growers, or anyone looking to grow a beautiful and productive small-scale garden.
