This is my monthly compilation of new gardening books based on notices from publishers and news from colleagues and authors. This is not meant to represent all gardening books but certainly provides one an idea of the variety of gardening books that are published. Use this list to keep abreast of current trends and practices as well as a resource for gifts.
To have this list delivered to your door every month, subscribe to Pegplant’s Post, a free monthly newsletter for people interested in gardening in the Washington DC metro area.
