PREPARE THE SOIL or use the raised bed designs which do not require digging. I even used raised beds for my azalea bushes as my mountain soil is too rocky.

SELECT THE BUSHES AND PLANTS by growing season so that you can have flowers blooming most of the year in the shade or sun. Each year they will grow, bloom and die back on their own. Do the work one year and reap the harvest for many years to come.

PLANT YOUR FLOWERING BUSHES so that few weeds can grow, water them the easy way and enjoy your slice of Heaven. Do the work one year and reap the benefits for many years to come.

Learn about selecting, planting and enjoying bushes as they become beautiful every year with their blossoms, colorful leaves and berries. You can also choose evergreen bushes so that you have a wide range of colors, shapes and designs in your garden all year long.

Valuable information is also included in these 116 pages on compost, fertilizer, mulch, weeds, disease and where you can find bargains and free plants.
