THE WATER-SAVING GARDEN:BOOK GIVEAWAY

THE WATER-SAVING GARDEN:BOOK GIVEAWAY

When water is in short supply there is no reason to give up gardening, you just need to adapt to the different circumstances. “The Water-saving Garden: How to Grow a Gorgeous Garden With a Lot Less Water” is the title of a new book by Pam Penick. I came across a review of the book by Debra Lee Baldwin on her blog Gardening Gone Wild. In addition Debra is offering to give away a copy of the book to the person who makes the best comment on her blog.

In her new book, The Water-Saving Garden: How to Grow a Gorgeous Garden with a Lot Less Water, author Pam Penick calls heedless waste of water ?madness.? Penick, who makes me want to raise a fist and holler, ?Tell it, Sister!? reminds us that clean drinking water gushing from faucets is a relatively new phenomenon?and unfortunately one we?ve come to take for granted.
It?s the perfect sequel to Penick?s previous bestseller?Lawn Gone! Low-Maintenance, Sustainable, Attractive Alternatives for Your Yard, and not simply?because of its rousing writing or?that many of the gardens include?succulents (about which I?m prejudiced). The Water-Saving Garden is?a terrific resource?for?its numerous practical (and painless) ideas, plus?photo after photo of great-looking gardens not blatantly (and painfully)?waterwise.?Like the one above, in Lakeland, Texas, that features Gulf muhly (Muhlengergia capillaris), agaves, yuccas and a ripply opuntia?
