AAS Display Gardens
Plan to visit a local All-America Selections Display Garden this summer. Each year, AAS evaluates plants in test gardens across the country. You'll get to see the newest flower varieties growing in a climate similar to your own, and get ideas for adding these to your landscape. For a state-by-state listing of AAS gardens, visit the All-America Selections Web site.

Books

The Perennial Gardener's Design Primer
The shocking pink cover of The Perennial Gardener's Design Primer by Stephanie Cohen and Nancy Ondra (Storey Publishing, 2005; $24.95) is an eye-catcher, but it's the solid advice, luxurious photos, and detailed garden designs within that make this book a keeper. There's a wealth of background information, ideas for creating special effects, and step-by-step guides for creating a new bed and renovating an old garden. I especially enjoy the mix of plant photos, planting diagrams, and lovely watercolor illustrations of garden ideas.
