    Welcome to the world of tomato gardening. There’s nothing as sweet and good as a sun-warmed tomato fresh from the garden on a hot summer afternoon. It’s no wonder that tomatoes are the most popular vegetable in America (though botanically, tomatoes are a fruit). Cordell’s audiobook walks you through the steps in raising tomatoes – through starting tomato seeds, planting (and tricks for planting tomatoes early), and staking and caging tomatoes.

    Perennials are the backbone of the garden - a low-maintenance, long-growing mainstay that the garden revolves around. I've worked with perennials for 20 years, as a manager in the perennials section at the local nursery, and then as a municipal horticulturist in charge of more than 20 gardens around the city. I've grown perennials from seed, potted them bare-rooted, divided them, deadheaded them, treated them for diseases and pests. Everything I've learned over the years I share here in this book - Perennial Classics.

    The rose is the Queen of Flowers. Roses are beautiful, fragrant, and elegant - and they require all the pampering of a real queen, don't they? Actually, they don't! Rose gardening can be easy and pleasant. I've worked 25 years in horticulture and cared for over 300 roses in a public rose garden when I was municipal horticulturist. I found ways to keep rose gardening fuss-budgetry to a minimum while growing vigorous roses that bloomed their heads off. Rose to the Occasion shares tricks and shortcuts that rosarians use.
