Publisher's Summary

Do you ever dream of having a beautiful shade garden all year-round, even if you have never gardened before? Then this is the audiobook for you! In one place, you will find step-by-step directions to growing a garden quickly and easily with very little work or expense.

You may think that flowers will not bloom in the shade and that a fabulous garden requires hours of work a week, with lots of time spent weeding and watering. That is not always the case! Here is an alternative gardening method with five easy steps that top gardeners use. 

This secret method will help you create your dream garden and hardly cost you anything in the process. You will be an inspiration to your family and your whole neighborhood. 

My first large garden was in Philadelphia (zone 7) and was mostly shady, but I had flowers, bulbs, flowering bushes, and flowering trees that were beautiful year-round with little or no maintenance and no digging. 

After 20 years, I moved to the country (zone 5) and am now the gardener for my apartment complex’s vast gardens that bloom all by themselves every year, from February until frost!

In Shade Garden Flowers you will discover:

  • 201+ photos of flowers that bloom beautifully in the shade, even some hardy roses.
  • How to save hundreds by learning which free plants grow back on their own.
  • How to avoid the thing beginners do that actually causes plants to die.
  • The exact plants that will bloom in the shade in your climate or zone.
  • The best soil mix that does not require digging.
  • Easy planting techniques to save you time that even a new gardener can do.
  • Ways to watch your garden increase each year on its own with little or no work.
  • How fragrances and colors will keep you, the birds, and the butterflies happy.
  • How to repel pests and weeds naturally from your garden.

The power of Shade Garden Flowers is that you are in charge of your garden and time and your garden is not in charge of you. You can have a breathtaking garden with little work, even if you have never gardened before. Follow these easy directions to have the time and energy to enjoy your garden with your family and friends, or in meditative silence, for many years to come with little cost or work.

Scroll up and press the buy now button to discover this easy method to design and plant a successful garden that blooms by itself every season and is beautiful year-round, giving you the freedom to enjoy your life.

I’ve been trying to grow garden for a while and I’ve been struggling a lot with key elements and soil problems. I’m happy to say that I am now a matured experienced gardener with a blossoming garden. This book took me every step of the way from what I did wrong and how I got to where I was all the way to where I want to be with my garden. I can honestly say that I’m really impressed with the tips and tricks that were given to me in this book and all the things that I missed. This audio was a good listen and I will definitely be replaying some chapters

Great info!

I’ve been wanting to spruce up my garden for years but I don’t have much of a green thumb and I also don’t want to spend a ton of time during the summer maintaining it. This book has all sorts of helpful tips on how to grow a garden with little effort and upkeep. And one that comes back year after year. Besides the advice on optimal plants and flowers to plant, I also appreciated the strategies about how to get rid of various bugs and pests using natural means. Thank you! I’m excited to get to gardening this spring. :-)

You Need This Book

This is such a great book for the beginning Gardner. Many new gardeners don’t understand why their gardens fail and their flowers won’t bloom. This book will tell you the answers and how to create the garden of your dreams. Through many years of gardening I learned the secrets of how to amend the soil so that your plants get all the nutrition, air and water that they need. This book will teach you all that it took me many years to learn. Buy this book!

Great tips!

I love gardening and always dreamed to have a beautiful garden one day. But I don't have time to do it yet. Plus I think it requires a lot of time and planning for landscaping. I'm glad I found this book. It has all the tips and shows you the steps to having a garden all year round and less work and the less expensive way which I like. I will try someday with these techniques.

An experts guide

Gardening is hard work. Period. But this book is giving you an out from the back-breaking work. My Parent's garden is huge and full of flowers I couldn't even begin to name. My mum works so hard out there and this book has inspired her to change it up! There are so many flowers and plants that like shade, it's astounding. We have invested in new plants and flowers for planting and we cannot wait to see the growth! There is a wealth of knowledge in the book, I highly recommend this to anyone wanting an easy option for a fab garden. Thanks Rose!

From a lazy gardener

This book was perfect for me...I was sold by "with little work!" I love looking out to my backyard and seeing flowers, but I always dread putting in the time and effort necessary to get to the outcome. I like how the author included helpful information about pests and disease as these are current challenges for me. I can't wait to put into practice what I've learned from this informative audio book!

One of my favourite gardening books!

I absolutely love this book! It was so touching that it was inspired by her mum, dad and grandma. I'm a very keen gardener and this covers everything you need to know on gardening. From beginner mistakes to preparing your soil/compost to pests and diseases. There is so much more to this than just planting something and watering it. To do it properly requires way more attention to detail and this provides just that. The FREE PFD is also a great addition!

For you AND your garden!

This came at the right time and will be very valuable for my new gardening hobby! I say that because this is very beginner friendly as it is guides you through a very good gardening process with fantastic tips to build a solid foundation! My favorite chapter has to be about getting rid of those nasty pests! A lot of factors held me back from starting because I was not confident but this book delivers what you need to know to be successful in gardening! Highly recommended!

Very helpful

We have a big garden and keeping flowers that we love, has been a big problem for us, As most of them are seasonal. However, after spending time on this book, I must say that the tips mentioned within really helped me and my wife.
My wife plays this on a Friday night for me after work so by Saturday morning we are in the garden practicing exactly every single tip mentioned in this book. she is so detailed that she doesn't allow me to try my own ideas, she just says, "it wasn't mentioned in SHADE GARDEN FLOWERS". I have to de exactly what's in this book if I want to make her happy. Great book I must confess. My wife made me like it.

Ideal for Scotland

I love flower gardens, but I live in Scotland. I will have to hear it 1-2 more times, but I almost have a plan on how to arrange my garden. The best thing is that there is a PDF with pictures of the flowers to see what he is talking about. Great book, if you love your garden, in the book you will find not only flowers but also shrubs and trees. Thanks, Rosa, I'm not going to ask Google anymore what to plant in September.

Great resource

This is just the book I was looking for. I have some planters in the back yard that are shaded by the trees. I've always wanted flowers in those planters, but every time I've tried, I have failed to keep them alive. I had given up having flowers there until I listened this book. Now I am inspired by the easy step-by-step directions provided by the author. I also thought only those having countless hours to devote to their garden could be successful. But I am going to trust the author and try the 5 easy steps she suggests. I can't wait to get started.

Spectacular!

Exactly what I've been looking for! I've just moved into a new house and it's the first one I've lived in since being back in the UK with a big garden. The only other time I've lived in a house with a garden was when I was a kid so I've been struggling with what to do with it. This book is an absolute Gem. It contains everything you need to know to set up a beautiful low maintenance garden that blooms all year long. And if like me you're in the UK, fear not, when they talk about USDA zones, most of the UK sits in zone 9. In brief, an excellent book with fantastic information to get your garden looking how you want it!
