Our Custom List of Gardening Books

Having just paid a fairly honking-big library fee, it really hits home: For not much more money, I could have bought or swapped for copies of the same titles, and they’d be mine to keep — books on gardening and sustainable living that I’m sure I’d use again and again, year in and year out. Not only are there some juicy new gardening books for the growing number of practical, small-space gardeners, but there’s also a vast quantity of out-of-print titles that are being rediscovered and newly appreciated.

This past weekend, I chose about 30 titles, both new and out-of-print, to add to the Small Green Garden Bookshelf on Powell’s.com. Follow that link, and you’ll see the whole lineup: container gardening resources, small-space and urban garden design guides, and even some DIY manuals and cookbooks written with the home vegetable gardener in mind.

I try to pick them with a discriminating eye and always appreciate your feedback, so if there’s something in particular you’d like to see up on the shelf, or reviewed right here, shoot me an email.

    We really enjoy reading your posts, i just used this website SwapmySeeds.com, as a way of giving away my unused seeds. Anyone know what I can sell them for? I have maybe 100 geranium seeds left.

    Huh, I’ll have to check that site out. I had been hoping to swap through myfolia.com.

    Do you mean supplying seeds to retailers? I have heard of gardeners selling seed to local seed companies, especially if it’s a rare variety. I don’t know geraniums from my derriere, so maybe it’s different in the case of flower varieties, but give it a go!
