The inviting garden : gardening for the senses, mind, and spirit by Allen Lacy( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Inviting Garden, Allen Lacy speaks for the great number of dedicated and committed gardeners who share his passion for green and growing things and who take pleasure in all the rich satisfactions that the personal garden offers its makers. He also invites the beginner to take the plunge - to set forth on the lifelong journey that is the gardener's way of life.Gardening, Lacy explains with great eloquence and good humor, is much more than a hobby. It delights all the senses, each in its turn. It offers virtually less intellectual stimulation. It has a profound spiritual dimension, as a basis for the lifelong friendships that bind people together in the common and shared pursuit of making the earth flourish with beauty. Its joys are unlimited, for they engage its practitioners as whole persons, not partial beings. With the kind of tantalizing prose that makes you want to reach for a trowel, Allen Lacy gives us a deeply thoughtful book on the whole enterprise of gardening."--WorldCat

17 editions published in 1967 in 4 languages and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gardening with groundcovers and vines by Allen Lacy( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first fully illustrated book to consider these two kinds of plants as indispensable elements of a garden--instead of substitutes for turf grass in shady spots or to help screen an ugly view. Garden columnist Allen Lacy explores the unsuspected charm and beauty of these plants, teaching his readers that together they provide the density, diversity, and depth that are essential to a truly satisfying garden. The book goes far beyond the staples, calling attention to hundreds of easily but not commonly grown plants: groundcovers for sunny places and shady ones, herbaceous perennials and woody plants, vines both perennial and annual. With over 140 full-color photographs.--From publisher description

Henry Mitchell on gardening by Henry Mitchell( )

2 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gardeners disagree about many things-cannas, double petunias, the color magenta-but on one subject they are unanimous. Henry Mitchell was simply the best garden writer this country has ever produced. As Allen Lacy writes in his introduction to this, the final collection of Mitchell's gardening essays, "In a time when most garden writing was lethally dull and as impersonal as a committee report, Henry Mitchell was the great exception. He was often funny. He was always passionate, for his loves were many, although by the evidence he was especially enamored of bearded irises, roses, and dragonflies. He was endlessly quotable, whether he was telling his faithful readers that 'marigolds should be used as sparingly as ultimatums' or reminding them that 'to go from winter to summer you have to pass March.'" But Mitchell was more than a master essayist whose newspaper columns were read and treasured even by those who had no interest in gardens or in his other passion, dogs. He was a great teacher. As one reviewer said of his book One Man's Garden, it "reflects a zest for gardening and provides more useful advice than one could find in a dozen how-to books." For twenty years Mitchell's column "The Essential Earthman" was a weekly feature in the Washington Post. And whether he was extolling the perfection of the capital's summer weather (best enjoyed at six A.M. while viewing his water lilies and eating an ice-cold Vidalia onion sandwich) or deriding the idea that England was a decent place to garden or extolling the virtue of leaving plants alone if they are doing well, his reputation spread through friends who clipped his columns and sent them to those unlucky enough not to have access to the Post. When his first collection, The Essential Earthman, was published, Mitchell became the national treasure he deserved to be. As Lacy writes, "These books will continue to find and delight new readers long into the coming century, for they are classics."
