By David Beaulieu:
My approach to presenting do-it-yourself landscaping tips is not only to instruct, but also to inspire. To that end, I try to engage the reader in some of the wonderful narratives that underlie the more mundane of plant facts, for example. Are you deeply passionate about plants? Then you will probably want to know more about them than just name, rank and serial number.
That's why I delve deeper than that for you at every opportunity, detailing not only what a plant looks like and how to grow and use it, but also how it received its name. I may also surprise you with a mythological association from time to time; more frequently, you'll see me divulge facts about traditional culinary or medicinal uses.
