Mini Meadows Book
 

SKU 3017 $17.00
Create low-cost, low-maintenance flower-filled plots around the yard that provide habitat for pollinators, reduce mowing, and address problem areas with special plantings for shady, damp, erosion-prone, or deer-susceptible spots. The word meadow conjures images of wide expanses of land, but a mini meadow is a kind of informal flower garden started with seed sown directly into the soil that can be any size; plus, it's fun, easy to grow, and good for the planet. With as little as 50 square feet and for less than $20, gardeners can plant a colorful meadow that demands little in the way of space, mowing, or maintenance, uses less water than a traditional lawn, and provides habitat for pollinators, not to mention a natural exploration space for children. From choosing the right variety of seeds, preparing the soil, sowing evenly, and watering well, author Mike Lizotte guides readers through the process of successfully creating a miniature meadow that suits their climate, soil, and growing goals, whether planting to beautify a hellstrip, halt erosion, fill a boggy spot, or establish a nesting area for bees and butterflies. Mini Meadows offers gardeners of all levels the keys to creating, caring for, and reaping the rewards of thriving meadows through the seasons, year after year. Paperback, 152 pages By Mike Lizotte
