Book Overview

This book is not for sissies. It is not for people who want merely to smell the flowers. In Guerrilla Gardening Barbara Pallenberg has given us a field manual for the resuscitation and nurture of neglected, damaged, and orphaned flora, and a way to use those castaways to create a beautiful garden.

Join the Plant Army!

I'll admit that when I first picked up this book at the bookstore I was miffed. I had been researching the concept of Guerilla Gardening for an article I was writing for a national gardening magazine; only my definition of the movement was something quite different than this book. I always figured people who anonymously plant herbs, flowers and veggies in vacant lots, abandoned bus stops and crack alleys were urban Johnny Appleseeds hoping to leave something beautiful in an otherwise desolate and depressing area. But author Barbara Pallenberg redefines Guerilla Gardening as a method of obtaining otherwise pricey plants for free. Because I also happen to be a cheapskate, or as I usually like to call myself a frugal gardener, this book still appeals to me; that is once I got beyond the book's title! This is a fun read and I can't get over how useful the info is about how to propogate just about every plant you can thing of. Thanks to the tips and humorous advice in this book my plant plunder pal Sharon and I have managed to already nab a part of a prickly pear cactus that fell inches away from where I'll be taking horticulture classes!
