Nov 15, 2016 03:32AM ● Published by Family Features

Whether you're looking for a gift to give a gardener in your life or you need ideas for your own yard, there's no shortage of new gardening books available. Here are a few books for gardeners:

"Seeds of Hope: Wisdom and Wonder from the World of Plants," by Jane Goodall.
Jane Goodall blends her experience in nature with her enthusiasm for botany to give readers a deeper understanding of the world around us and delivers an enlightening story of the wonders we can find in our own backyards.

 "Square Foot Gardening Answer Book," by Mel Bartholomew.
Using proven techniques, appliances and approaches, this book will put more harvest on your table, with no additional garden beds. For more than 30 years Mel Bartholomew has been answering questions from Square Foot Gardeners, and this book presents the very best of that information.

"Presidents' Gardens," by Linda Hoyt.
The White House's manicured grounds and magnificent gardens are rarely seen by the public. This book celebrates these gardens. Photographs illustrate the best of the presidential gardens, while the text is peppered with useful tips from gardeners who contributed to White House beautification projects.

"An Amish Garden," by Laura Anne Lapp.
Gorgeous photographs illustrate an Amish woman's diary of six working gardens, from January through December. Step apart and enter this pastoral world of hard work, sturdy families, the freshest of flowers and produce, all in harmony with the seasons.

"The Backyard Parables," by Margaret Roach.
Margaret Roach has been harvesting thirty years of backyard parables and has distilled them in this memoir along with her best tips for garden making, discouraging all manner of animal and insect opponents, at-home pickling and more.

"Lawn Gone: Low Maintenance, Sustainable, Attractive Alternative for Your Yard," by Pam Penick.
A colorful guide covering the basics of replacing a traditional lawn with a wide variety of easy-care, no-mow, drought-tolerant, money-saving options that will appeal to today's busy, eco-conscious homeowner. Whether you're a beginner or expert gardener, the book gives you realistic choices, achievable plans, and simple instructions for renovating your yard from start to finish.
