Hello Gardeners of Bloglandia!
Since I’ve been keenly focussed on my fiction for the past couple years, you may have forgotten that a while ago I wrote a little non-fiction book called Going Native: Small Steps to a Healthy Garden.
The book pulls on my wide array of gardening know-how, blends it with a strong concern for the environment and for native flora and fauna, then tops it all off with sprinkling of my scientific background.
Don’t let that last science-y bit scare you. Going Native has been described as a “very approachable guide” and having a “reader-friendly writing style” while still being “chock-full of information.”
Basically, the book shows you how small changes in the plants you choose can create a healthier garden that’s easy and inexpensive to maintain, benefits the environment, conserves resources, and protects your area’s native species.
Going Native will…
- Guide you through the benefits of going native,
- Provide tips on how to plan your native garden,
- Teach you where to obtain native plants, and
- Step you through getting your native garden off to the best start possible and how to care for it once it’s in place.
Living up to that “chock-full of information” comment, Going Native also walks you through the basics of eco-friendly gardening such as…
- Controlling invasive species,
- Going chemical free,
- Dealing with pests and weeds,
- Understanding soil type,
- Rethinking your lawn,
- Attracting wildlife, and more
