une foule de renseignements, un texte clair et un choix parfait pour savoir l'essentiel sur le sujet. Ce n'est pas une 'journaliste je-sais-rien-mais-je-dirai-tout' qui a écrit le livre et le vécu se sent à chaque page.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb! 28 août 2005

I already owned the well-known books on hardy geraniums by Trevor Bath / Joy Jones and Peter Yeo when this new book was published, so at first I hesitated a little before buying yet another book about this increasingly popular garden plant. I have not regretted buying it. I would't want to be without the other two books but the newcomer has a lot to offer: You will find many new cultivars that were unknown to the other authors; it's interesting to compare the experiences of someone gardening in Denmark, where climatic conditions are tougher, to those of English gardeners; there is a fascinating chapter on a leading Dutch breeder of geraniums; you'll find excellent chapters on cultivation and propagation, illustrated with useful pictures; there are 450 brilliant photographs, among them close-ups of flowers and leaves, so you can compare them handily, but also of whole plants and borders, so you get the "micro-perspective" as well as the "macro-perspective"; and, last not least, the author shows real passion when writing, very competently and wittily, about gardening with geraniums. If you are looking for a systematic and scientific monograph about cranesbills, you are better served with Peter Yeo's standard work (2nd edition), but if you are gardening and as crazy about geraniums as I am - then you can't do without this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wow! Incredibly informative and a good read too! 1 avril 2006

In my garden planning, I keep running across stunning and adorable hardy geraniums. I got this book on a lark, and based on previous reviews, to get a little more information such as "will these actually look as nice in MY garden" and "are they as hardy as advertised"... I have read this book cover to cover since I got it a few days ago--the author is outstanding, showing a true passion for gardening and gardening using geraniums. She is entertaining and explains each of the variations/hybrids simply and thoroughly. This is the first gardening book I have read and finally "gotten" the latin names, understanding the characteristics of each of 'these' parents produces offspring having 'those' features. I know that's not a hard concept, but sorting through garden catalogs, garden stores, etc. I guess I'd get jaded and set my planning aside for a while. Birgitte explains the features of each kind of geranium and their best uses and placement (will this one work in a rock garden or only woodland settings?), as well as having a great photo of most every flower and some of their leaves to show the many variations and combinations. Many of the plants I have seen just recently on-line are included in this book, which made me pretty happy. I learned that Geranium 'Anne Folkard' may not survive a cold, damp winter unless I take extra care and shelter it a little, and G. pratense Midnight Reiter may not grow as fast as I would have liked it too to fill in the area where I wanted to place it.

After reading "Gardening with Hardy Geraniums", I am taking this book with me to the garden stores, with my slightly revised list, so if I see something else that calls out to me, I can look it up and know a heckova lot more than on the little plant tag. I wish more plant-specific books were more like this one--really interesting and informative without being just a list of plants with the same information on the plant tags.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Superb detail...and the photos! 22 mai 2010

I love gardening! Several years ago I fell in love with hardy geraniums and have, over the years, acquired several varieties without knowing a lot about them. No longer can I say that, thanks to Birgitte Husted Bendtsen's beautiful book published by Timber Press.

Most of the detailed photos are by Ms. Bendtsen herself. Chapters discuss family and genus, cultivation and propagation, specialty uses such as in rock gardens, beneath roses and more. There's a section on bee pollination that includes the most charming photo of two bees curled up in the bowl of a Geranium Gracile bloom.

Chapters discuss the many different types of hardy geraniums and give information on each type. (Did you know that two different hardy geraniums planted close together can have "children"? Did you know that Geranium Sanguineum can be identified as such because it produces a single flower rather than a pair?) I have several clumps of G. Sanguineum in my mountain cottage garden--a gift from a fellow gardener. By comparing a blossom to the twenty varieties shown in the book, I was able to determine that I have "John Elsley."

As another reviewer stated, G. Ann Folkard may not adapt well to a wet and cold climate. I live in a rainy area and can say that this variety does quite well as does G. Brookside. Not mentioned in the book is the extreme hardiness of G. A.T. Johnson. I started ten years ago with one four-inch plant and now have patches of A.T. in every bed. It propagated very well.

Buy this book. It's a wonderful addition to your gardening library.

I already had the two books on hardy geraniums that are written by Trevor Bath and Peter Yeo, so I thought I had adequately covered that topic in my gardening library. However, I have recently become more interested in these flexible garden plants as good companions for my collection of heirloom roses. Visiting a friend who is something of an expert on geraniums, I came across this book. I pretty much read it cover to cover over the course of a week-long visit, but decided I needed a copy for myself. It suits my needs more closely than either of the other two books, though both of them are also quite good. Despite the high cost, I ordered a copy.
