I really enjoyed this book. It has practical, simple steps for organizing your home.  It moves you from disorganization to organized step-by-step and helps to keep you from being overwhelmed with the process.  I like the easy tone of the author’s writing.  She is direct and enthusiastic without being saccharin.  This book is the most polished presentation of organizing your life and home that I have found.  It is a treasure that you will use and appreciate.

    Selecting perennial plants can be overwhelming – there are hundreds of choices, and it’s difficult to know when your plants will bloom, whether they’ll thrive in sunny or shady spots, and which ones will look well together. In Five-Plant Gardens, Nancy Ondra eliminates the guesswork and the stress, offering 52 garden plans that each use only five plants! These plans are simple, inexpensive, and sure to look beautiful all season long. They are grouped according to whether they grow best in sun, partial shade, or full shade, and each one includes an illustrated planting plan, a shopping list with brief plant descriptions, information on what to expect as the planting matures, and tips on customizing the plan for different sites and climates.

    Review

    Author Nancy Ondra has written a book that is beautiful, thoughtful and practical. Even the best of gardeners has had their share of poorly orchestrated vignettes and disasters but Ondra inspires us to try yet again. The author’s process is so very simple you will wondering why you never thought about it before!  Each plant is broken down into categories based on available light and varying cultural conditions making is easy to use and understand. The lush photographs clearly illustrate the points he shares about texture, form and color. I have found this to be an invaluable resource in creating my own garden using perennials.  A picture is indeed worth a thousand words and this marvelous book is a great visual aid helping me choose which plants to pick, letting me see how plants work in combination.  This is a must have addition to the library for the novice as well as the seasoned gardener.
