    "Perennial gardening - stunning garden for ever!"

    ‘Perennial Gardening’ by Susan Hollister is a worth to read guide about many different kind of bulbs, flowers, herbs and vegetables. They are very valuable plants but also need to be properly maintained. Susan shows how to looking after your plants to have wonderful garden year by year.
    I especially love hostas with beautiful, rich leaves but I just hate when slugs eaten them. I don’t try to spread sand around it, but it looks simple and more natural than blue pellets that I really afraid because kids and animals can accidentally taste.
    Also I never know that I shouldn’t cut dried steams of tulips as they may never grow again.So I won’t do it anymore.
    Susan gives very practical advices also what to do with perennial herbs, how to cut them and what are they favourite position. I love natural medicine so always have herbs in my garden but sometimes they just too poor and have insects on them. I am looking for more audiobooks by Susan Hollister about gardening and how to naturally prevent plants from aphides, slugs and others insects.
    I just can’t wait for spring time to prepare my garden that will be even more excited with Susan’s audio book that are well-narrated.

I adore lilies and enjoyed listening all about how to plant them, and I also discovered some great tips to harvest blueberries. If you are thinking of growing vegetables or plants this book will be a great help as it will tell you before you start what you need to know. You will learn about many varieties of plants, vegetables, and flowers such as Egyptian onions, mint, Lilly of the Valley – plenty to choose from! Finally, you will find useful tips on perennial care and choosing the right gardening tools.

    "The benefits of Perennial Gardening Explained."

    The book does an amazing job at explaining how to plant each type of food in the garden, how it grows and the benefits of the nutrients that the roots of the plants put inside of the soil. I enjoy the information about planting onions and regulation the dandelion flower to reap the benefits of the amount of nutrients inside of them. I didn't even know there was a benefit of making them into a salad and if you want to know about more plants and their nutrition this is also helpful. This book also shows the benefits of using compost and growing your own food to have this pesticide free source of food. There’s useful techniques inside of here as well to remove pests.
