As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Today's book recommendation: The Evening Garden: Flowers and Fragrance from Dusk Till Dawn by Peter Loewer
This book reveals both the history and science of the night garden. The topic of night-blooming plants has always fascinated gardeners. For example, newspaper articles over the past two centuries have shared excited reports of blooms on the night blooming cereus.
This book came out in the early 90's and was advertised to gardeners who found themselves working long hours during the daytime which equated to little time for gardening.
This book offers information about the history and the raising of night blooming plants as well as chapters on night fragrances, wildlife, and plans for outdoor lighting. It’s an oldie but goodie.
You can get copies of this book on Amazon using the today show notes for as little as $.25
