Description

Plants for Free is a budget-friendly guide to creating your perfect garden, and the cost is nothing!

In this book, Sharon Amos explains how to design and create a beautiful garden for little or no money, offering tips on bartering for clippings, getting a bargain at garage sales or neighbourhood fairs, digging up suckers or adapting wild species and controlling them in a garden environment. She provides a comprehensive directory of 80 plants including detailed advice on where and how to grow a wide variety of garden favourites, from snowdrops to poppies.

With beautiful illustrations, Plants for Free is the perfect gift book for cultivating your garden on a budget of next-to-nothing.

The author

Sharon Amos has written about gardening for Saga Magazine, Country Homes & Interiors, Period Living and the Guardian, among others. She is also the author of Great Plants for Tough Places and Create a Wildlife-friendly Garden. In her own garden she relies on plants self-feeding to create new effects every year – she’s what you might call a laissez-faire gardener.
