The Nonstop Garden gives gardeners all the information they need to create a productive, beautiful
garden from the ground up. This easy-to-use guide is split into four main parts: the nuts and bolts of
designing a mixed garden, the garden’s main attractions (trees and shrubs), the garden’s supporting

The Nonstop Garden also includes ten fail-safe design plans that can be incorporated into any garden.
Gardeners can choose from a native garden, a scented garden, a gold-colored garden, a garden for wet
sites, a vibrant-colored garden, a cool-colored garden, a winter garden, a shade garden, and a design
plan for the daunting area known as the hellstrip.

What IS a nonstop garden?

arrangements that transition gracefully from January to August to January again without ever
being boring.

Smart gardeners know that soil is anything but an

of related interest:
inert substance. Healthy soil is teeming with life—
not just earthworms and insects, but a staggering
multitude of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. When we use chemical fertilizers, we injure
the microbial life that sustains healthy plants, and thus become increasingly dependent on an arsenal
of artificial, often toxic, substances. But there is an alternative to this vicious cycle. We can garden in a
way that strengthens the soil food web—the complex world of soil-dwelling organisms whose interac-
tions create a nurturing environment for plants.
Teaming with Microbes extols the benefits of cultivating the soil food web. First, it clearly explains the
activities and organisms that make up the web. Next, it explains how gardeners can cultivate the life of
the soil through the use of compost, mulches, and compost tea. The revised edition updates the

gardeners who simply want to grow healthy, vigorous plants without resorting to chemicals—can
create rich, nurturing, living soil.
