The Allergy-Fighting Garden by Thomas Leo Ogren
If you are one of the millions of people with allergies or asthma, this totally unique book shows you how to avoid plants that trigger allergies and to create a garden that will actually protect you by trapping pollen and cleaning the air around you. This revolutionary approach combines the best of horticulturist Thomas Ogren’s previous books—Allergy-Free Gardening and Safe Sex in the Garden—into a full-color guide, including hundreds of new and updated plant listings and photographs.

Although many gardeners rely heavily on smaller perennials, annuals, and bulbs, McIndoe makes the case for shrubs as a main element in garden design in this richly illustrated book. Shrubs are hardy, beautiful year round, and are extremely low-maintenance. McIndoe prepares readers to choose their own shrubs by introducing them to the basics including advice on selection based on garden size, soil and climate, and pruning and maintenance. He then helps readers focus selections by offering inspiration in the form of hundreds of different beautiful shrub combinations that complement fifteen different garden styles including cottage, tropical, and urban.
