The Gin and Tonic Gardener

The Gin and Tonic Gardener is designed for those who would rather enjoy our gardens than be enslaved by them. Weeds? Janice Wells exhorts us to have another gin and tonic to obscure, or at the very least, help you forget, those usurpers of the garden.

Janice Wells, a well-known writer and journalist, uses her own garden as a laboratory for the gardening column she writes for the Halifax Chronicle-Herald. Though filled with humor, The Gin and Tonic Gardener provides practical tips, including ways to transform a concrete pathway to look like paving stones, how to disguise an ugly fence by encouraging vines to cover it, and how to scour rummage sales for inexpensive and attractive outdoor furniture. Plus, she offers a listing plants that will grow despite willful neglect, poor growing conditions, and being occasionally doused with the remnants of a cocktail.

Spirited, funny, and filled to the brim with amusing gardening anecdotes and wisdom, this book is designed especially for the reluctant gardener who is looking for a way out of the tyranny espoused in gardening magazines, home and garden television shows, and those fussy neighbors who cast disgusted glances at the green spaces outside our homes.
