Martha Stewart has been gardening since she was three years old, when she worked at her father's side in Nutley, New Jersey. In a crowded but orderly backyard plot, flower and vegetable beds were tended every day, prize-winning roses, tomatoes, and peaches were grown, and Martha made her first mistakes and had her first successes. Here were the practice grounds for her own garden, the six-acre "place in the country" documented in this book.
Located in Zone 6, in Westport, Connecticut, this property has for twenty years been the focus of Martha's intense interest in serious gardening. The basic tenets of landscape design, seed propagation, and cultivation were learned, absorbed, and used to transform neglected onion fields into a personal, evocative, colorful, and useful garden of great charm and hidden delights.
While the garden was growing, Martha kept a journal, noting the mix of grass seed that made the sturdiest path, the fifteen varieties of basil that would grow in the herb garden, the mold that grew under the buckwheat hull mulch, the name of the old-fashioned climbing rose that best covered the chicken house, the tree that gave the most flavored apples for baking. From that journal grew this book, filled with detailed indormation on growing beautiful and unusual perennials, Martha's idiosyncratic methods of planting and transplanting, and her step-by-step instructions for establishing a garden plan, improving the soil, choosing cultivars, and maintaining a productive garden.
