Plants You Can't Kill: 101 Easy-to-Grow Species for Beginning Gardeners by [Tornio, Stacy]

"I kill everything I plant."

Does this sound like you or someone you know? Give yourself a pat on the back because admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery. And lucky for you, you can easily turn your brown thumb into a green one with the help of Plants You Can’t Kill.

Seriously—it doesn’t matter how many plants you’ve killed in gardens past. It’s time to put those experiences behind you and finally grow something in your empty and bare spots. This is the only gardening book you’ll ever need with more than 100 plant picks for every situation. You want veggies? We have ’em. You need to fill a big space? We have shrub ideas for you. You just want something pretty? We have plenty of that, as well.

The plants in Plants You Can’t Kill have been vetted by an amazing and famous panel of horticulture experts (this is just a fancy way of saying they went to college for gardening), so feel confident you’re not wasting money on yet another gardening book. These plants will actually survive your well-meaning, yet sometimes neglectful ways.

Ready for the most resilient, hardcore, badass list of plants known to gardeners? Find them and grow them with the help of Plants You Can’t Kill.

This book is perfect for me!  I do kill all plants, except the one I got at my Dad's funeral.  It has been a chore to keep it alive too, because I have zero skills when it comes to gardening and plant maintenance.  So this book has allowed my husband and myself to plan and prepared to add more plants into our house, into our garden and into our flower beds.  There is so much to love about this book.  It is easy to read/understand, there are bright and beautiful pictures and tips to help you hone your skills and to slowly become a green thumb.  Each page features a plant, their profile, stats, tip and other added informational goodies!!!  Who knew there was 101 plants I cannot kill.  I love that this book is broke down in the following categories:  annuals, perennials, grasses, shrubs and trees, houseplants, veggies and herb, as well as a funny and sweet disclaimer, special thanks, about the author and a plant index.  I am telling you, this book has everything a novice green thumb would need and want to be on the road to gardening like a pro.  A must for all households wanting to add more healthy and beautiful plants, veggies, herbs, trees and other greenery into your life.
