Drying and Preserving Plant Materials
If you enjoy preserving seedpods, flowers, and foliage from the garden, now's the time to start collecting, and this Drying and Preserving Plant Materials site can help. It tells the best techniques for a great number of plants, and it introduced me to skeletonizing leaves for the lacy effect in arrangements. I bet you'll learn something new, too.


Garlic, Onion, & Other Alliums
Whether you're first and foremost a flower gardener or a vegetable gardener, this book will tantalize. Garlic, Onion, & Other Alliums, by Ellen Spector Platt (Stackpole Books, 2003; $19.95) has something for everyone: plant lore, medicinal uses, growing instructions, craft projects, and recipes. By the time you're finished poring over it, you'll swear you can smell the aroma of chives.
