The time has finally come when we can get out in the yard and start uncovering the sprouts curling up from the earth and lay down seeds for a bounty of flowers, fruits, and vegetables to appear. No matter what type of gardening, landscaping, or yard work you have planned, Ebooks Minnesota has a book to offer ideas and answer questions about projects Minnesota residents might undertake this time of year.
For example, if you're new to gardening, you might want to take a look at Beginner's illustrated guide to gardening: techniques to help you get started. If you live in an apartment and don't have a yard or access to a plot of land take a look at Container gardening for all seasons : enjoy year-round color with 101 designs or Any size, anywhere edible gardening: the no yard, no time, no problem way to grow your own food. Along those same lines, if you're really interested in incorporating food into your garden there is The edible landscape : creating a beautiful and bountiful garden with vegetables, fruits and flowers and All new square foot gardening : more projects, new solutions, grow vegetables anywhere.
For those who are interested in working with native plants, the go-to book is Landscaping with native plants of Minnesota. If you're looking for books about landscaping to improve the health and color of your yard, then The nonstop color garden : design flowering landscapes and gardens for year-round enjoyment and Plant this instead! : better plant choices : prettier, hardier, blooms longer, new colors, less work, drought-tolerant, native will help.
Finally, if you want to incorporate children into yard work, gardening, or summer projects, you can pique their interest with Miniature gardens: design and create miniature fairy gardens, dish gardens, terrariums and more--indoors and out, Making butterfly gardens, or Enchanted gardening : growing miniature gardens, fairy gardens, and more.
It seems that there is a little something for everyone in Ebooks Minnesota. From composting, to harvesting, to starting a yard-work business or building raised beds and trellises you can find books for the very young child just learning about seeds to the seasoned gardener looking for ideas to be more self-reliant and sufficient in the yard.
