Plant Facts Index & Directory Advice & Information
The ABC's of Indoor Ficus Trees
by Patricia Hamilton "I was genuinely surprised to open this book and find the answer to every question I had about the forest of ficus that I have to care for daily. I put the suggestions into practice and the trees stopped shedding leaves and are now beginning to grow strongly. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who needs help with these temperamental, but beautiful trees." A reader, Los Angeles, CA
Catfish Ponds & Lily Pads: Creating and Enjoying a Family Pond, by Louise Riotte
"This is a beautifully written book! It contains many whimsical anecdotes on the process of building a pond, also much practical information on plants, fish, frogs, turtles, and ducks. Having just built a pond, I found this book just the ticket. It doesn't have much about the actual digging and construction--that information is best obtained from your local Soil and Water Conservation Office. But I highly recommend this book if you're building a "real" pond (not one of those plastic pool things)." A reader from Ohio
