Peg’s Picks: Gardening Books

These are new gardening books that have been or will be published in this month. This is my monthly compilation 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 in the United States on a monthly basis.
