When searching the catalog for books about gardening, use different search terms based on the type of gardening you’re interested in—organic, flower, houseplants, etc. (In the case of houseplants use “house plants” or “indoor gardening” for best results.)
Choosing plants that require less water helps our environment and ensures your garden or landscaping stays vibrant even under watering restrictions.
