By the author of a ten year long beloved series in Pacific Horticulture journal, this book is not like anything you have seen before on our pages!
The birds, mammals, reptiles, and insects that inhabit our yards and gardens are overwhelmingly on our side—they are not our enemies, but instead our allies. They pollinate our flowers and vegetable crops, and they keep pests in check. In Garden Allies, Frédérique Lavoipierre shares fascinating portraits of these creatures, describing their life cycles and showing how they keep the garden’s ecology in balance. Also included is helpful information on how to nurture and welcome these valuable creatures into your garden. With beautiful pen-and-ink drawings by Craig Latker, Garden Allies invites you to make friends with the creatures that fill your garden—the reward is a renewed sense of nature’s beauty and a garden humming with life.
“Frédérique Lavoipierre explains how your garden can be more than a collection of high-maintenance decorations; it can be a thriving, balanced community that gives more to your landscape than it takes.” —Douglas W. Tallamy, author of The Nature of Oaks, Nature’s Best Hope, and Bringing Nature Home.
