Hortus Miscellaneous : A Gardener's Hodgepodge of Information and Instruction
From the kinds of trees standing at Great Dixter to the 20 deadliest flowers to the best small garden animals according to the Indiana Department of Agriculture -- gardening presents a trove of information to sift through. Where does botany start but with the naming and grouping of all flora? List-making is in the gardener's blood, and this collection of random facts, data, and wisdom will excite the Latin-spouting garden geek as much as the arrival of the new Heronswood catalog. Inspired by Schott'sOriginal Miscellany,the book contains entries practical (the 15 ornamental plants that deer won't eat) and impractical (the flower on the grave of famed gardener Gertrude Jekyll).Hortus Miscellaneousincludes thematic planting lists (blue flowers, night-blooming, shade ground covers); historic gardens (from Babylon to Central Park); size matters (biggest trees, longest root, heaviest cabbage); topiary; state flowers; maze patterns; mulch formulas; and much more.
