If you’re looking for how-to manuals on gardening—what to plant when and where—this is not the book for you. If you’re looking for permission to have fun in your garden,... More > accept the unexpected and dabble in a new art form—look no further. “I Grew It My Way, How Not to Garden” is just that: one person’s wacky account of all things natural.

When someone walked off with one of those expensive gazing balls, she came back with bowling balls. The same round shape, right? No one wants to take those. When the noxious stinging nettle appeared, she embraced that too. It’s good for the compost, an antidote to arthritis and makes a pretty good lasagna. Fishman likes to share in her plant swaps, in the column she writes for the Savannah Morning News and in her new book, a poetic, practical, beautiful approach to gardening. 9781495194696< Less
