Q. I would like to find writing on the art/skill/craft of garden weeding and cultivation. Can you recommend some books to me?
Our library is well stocked with the information you need. We welcome you to come and peruse our collection (right now the library area is in renovation, so come a little later -- see details below). A few books I have found that seem appropriate may be:
The Art of Planting Rosemary Verey
Color in My Garden Louise Beebe Wilder
Garden Style Penelope Hobhouse
America's Garden Book Bush-Brown This book is a must. It is a comprehensive, detailed description of basic garden practices and an excellent book that gardeners in our area should own. It is written by authors from the Philadelphia area.
If you are curious about the science behind gardening, check out
Botany for Gardeners Brian Capon. Librarians here at PHS library have created some terrific subject guides that you will find useful. These guides contain "best of" selections of books, websites, articles and more. See these in particular:
