The Compact Garden: Discovering the Pleasures of Planting in a Small Space.

by Brian Fawcett

Condition: See description

Willowdale, ON, Canada Camden House: Firefly Books, 1992. Paperback First Ed, unstated. First Ed, unstated. Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities; mildest rubbing; a very faint crease inside the front hinge. Binding square and secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 4to. 127pp. Trade Paperback. This is a great garden book - wonderful advice for compact gardens and also tips and philosophies you can apply to larger areas too. But what is delightful is the author's wit. I was given the book as a gift, and at first glance it looks like a regular ol' Sunset style how-to garden book. But read the text. Brian Fawcett is quite witty as he details past successes and disasters of his own and his friends gardens, and you will get a taste of his progressive philosophies particularly when it comes to urban gardening, and just what it means to be a gardener. I am not sure if this book is even in print or not but boy do I recommend it!
