Janit Calvo. Timber, $19.95 (256p) ISBN 978-1-60469-372-0
Small hands, attention to detail, and imagination facilitate gardening in miniature. Calvo offers additional tools necessary for creating happy worlds that grow on a small scale. At first glance the book might appear to cover only fairy gardens and their attendant accoutrements: little fences, fairy statues, and hidden walkways. Upon close examination, however, the reader quickly discovers a more comprehensive intention: Calvo addresses appropriate horticultural requirements for this fascinating sophisticated approach to container gardening. By means of charts and colorful (and zoomed in) photographs, the book outlines in well-organized ways growing techniques, plant choices, soil requirements, and workable planting combinations for the small-scale gardener. Container / miniature gardening is a magical option for the gardener with limited yard space. This book will position well anyone who wants to begin creating a little world filled with happy growing things. (June 19)
