Great Deals on Gardening Books

August 25, 2009


So what does a gardener do, all winter long?

Why, we read our gardening books. 😀

This is the time of year when I scarf up cheap gardening books for the coming inactive days of winter. Yes, while my beautiful plants sleep their dormant slumber, I am busily planning away our next exploits for the coming growing season. And in the autumn, many books go on clearance and on sale, so it’s easy pickins. 🙂 has a terrific selection of books, did you know that? They do! This lovely little book, Stonework: Building Rock Gardens, Walks, Wall, and Ornaments is on sale for $9!!

So this is a great time of the year to nab up any books you will need for the coming season– it is always cheaper to get things at the end of a season; I do that with just about everything! And while you’re at it, you may want to look around for other great deals at I love this place! They have everything– from firewire cables to garden tools to footwear! has special deals on everything, and many times it all comes with free shipping. Definitely check them out next time you need anything under the sun. Or the latest “Idiot’s Guide To” book. 😀

    I’ll be busy outside until the end of October as long as it isn’t too nasty and cold. But you are right – I need to make plans this winter for next spring. I keep saying I will but I never do and then I usually pay for it because I haven’t planned and prepared for spraying and such.

    Right now, I’m physically ready for the snow to fly. It’s been a rough growing season around here.

      Rebecca (hey, nice name), same here– I will do SOMETHING until it’s buried in snow. We’ve got autumn weather today and BOY OH BOY does it feel spectacular!!! It’s been a rough growing season here, too. 🙁 I have been contemplating snapping photos of my veggie garden, but I don’t want to scare y’all away… yikes, can’t wait til May! 😉
