I expected a gardening manual -- I had no IDEA that I'd be inspired. I feel like I met a friend with the same plant geekiness that I have; it's rare to find. I learned a lot about wild plants in my area and how important it is to incorporate them in a totally unique way to think about gardening. ( )

Elegantly written & packed with useful information to help gardeners rethink how & what they plant & nurture. Seed-saving, food cropping with CA native plants, restoration gardening are just some of topics Lowry covers here. ( )

this book was fun to read, especially for a ca native plant nut, it really explains the way a landscape can be transformed by bringing back the natural ecosystem into yards including all the life that generates.....birds, bugs, reptiles, and on and on. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0520215176, Paperback)

This lyrical and articulate mix of the practical and the poetic combines personal story, wildland ecology, restoration gardening practices, and native plant horticulture. Judith Lowry's voice and experiences make a rich matrix for essays that include discussions of wildflower gardening, the ecology of native grasses, wildland seed-collecting, principles of natural design, and plant/animal interactions. Though this book is based on California gardens, readers from all parts of the country will be inspired and informed by these examples of gardening to include "the larger garden beyond the fence."
Gardening with a Wild Heart promises to be a classic for lovers of nature writing, gardeners, bioregionalists, and students and professionals in horticulture, landscape design, and ecological restoration.
