Comments 50 High-Impact, Low-Care Garden Plants

    Review: 50 High-Impact, Low-Care Garden Plants: Tough-but-Beautiful Plants Anyone Can Grow by Tracy Disabato-AustAs a novice gardener, I am drawn to gardening books with a judicious mix of beautiful pictures and helpful advice. This book caught me with its opening: I wrote this book because you might be like me. You love to garden, but there is never enough timeI've been a gardener for over thirty years both as an avocation and vocation. I love gardening but I also have countless other passions [...]


  • Denise

    Stunning photographs but not enough information in my opinion. The plants in this book were picked by the author for the climate and growing conditions found in Ohio. But not everyone has the money to afford such plantings. There are those of us who consider themselves lucky to be able to buy a flat of petunias but still have grandiose gardening dreams nevertheless. I'm going back to my library to find a book on "low cost" gardening tips and plants.


  • M

    Good but not great for this area of the country.


  • Pam

    This book focuses on Zone 5 Midwestern gardens as the author is located in Ohio however many of the plants will survive in other zones. Disabato-Aust has many interesting entries in her top list that even experienced gardeners are sure to find ones to consider. Gardening tends to be so trendy that I was pleased she highlighted many under used plants that are both tough and beautiful.


  • Tonya Hardin

    Information was helpful but only one plant I really was interested in.

    A great book to refer to when planning a garden, buying plants, and/or scheduling your time for the garden & other activities. Fantastic photography so one does not purchase the incorrect plant by visual means. This book has notes by the author that are to the right of the narrative. Best of all, I think, is the list of low-maintenance qualities of each plant included in this book. I have already ordered the Graham Thomas fragrant honeysuckle which I just know will look phenomenal with a dee [...]


  • Candy

    I liked the way this book was arranged, with large photos and little summary blocks about each plant. Learning that the big blue hostas are slug resistant was good information for me, because I think they are beautiful, and the slugs have eaten all the others that I have tried!! I think I will also try Solomon's seal under my pines.It kind of amazed me that the author planted 85 Rozanne geraniums to make a blue river in her yard. How do people afford to buy so many plants?


  • Elizabeth

    Yes, this book departs radically from her other books, which explored concepts and strategies rather than plant recommendations, but if you want a good, detailed, honest list of plant recommendations that will get you excited about the plants in question, well, this is it.I was particularly fascinated by all her great shade recs, including grasses for shade. I will be using and referring to this book, for sure.


  • William

    I planted a Rosa rugosa 'Hansa' this year based on the recommendation in this book.I am particularly intrigued by the recommendation of the 'Ogon' dawn redwood. If everyone planted one, it would dramatically transform the landscape of many locations.This is a valuable book. It makes specific recommendations, and lays out the logical case for those recommendations.Worth buying.


  • Josephine

    Any book that includes pruning in the low-care doesn't understand my concept of low care! I want a plant-it and forget-it garden. Pruning and shaping doesn't really fit my concept. I marked a few plants which seemed interesting and I may include them in my next gardening project.


  • Kiri

    Fabulous book! I really liked the way it was organized. Although there were quite a few plants that were not in my zone (4), thus revealing that this is not a book aimed specifically at Minnesotans, I got some ideas for plants I'd like to have.


  • David Ward

  • Laurie

    Quick readting & unusual plants, including perennials, shrubs, trees & grasses. Definitely hope to try some of these one day.


  • Mary

    Well put together book. Plus the author lives in my state.


  • Sandy T

    Love this book! So many great recommendations for interesting and unusual plants mine is bookmarked all through it!


  • Lauren

    Great pictures and descriptions, good information. Got some ideas.


  • Trish

    This book has a lot of plants in it.


  • Lee Anne

    Anyone? We'll see.


  • Jennifer Muller

    I thought this was a pretty great book. The pictures were beautiful and it gave great detailed information about what the plants would need. Being new to the area, this book was great for me.
