Somehow I have accumulated extra copies of a number of fine garden books. I have therefore decided to declare, until further notice, that every Wednesday will be Garden Book Giveaway Day.
Each Wednesday I will give away one book (free shipping included) to the person who provides the best answer to a garden-related question. Winners will be selected by a panel made up of Chicago aldermen not currently under indictment, plus Jared Kushner.
Contestants must be from the USA or Canada, because I’m not made of money, people.
This week’s giveaway is a hardcover copy of Garden Revolution, by Larry Weaner and Thomas Christopher.
According to Rick Darke, this book is “An essential reference for conservation-minded home gardeners and stewards of larger landscapes.”
And here is this week’s question:
How many times have you tried to grow a plant that kept dying on you? Name the plant, and explain if the effort was worth it.
Please keep it under 100 words. Answers must be posted by midnight on Saturday, February 24th. The winner will be revealed the following Wednesday.
