Fall blooms for an explosion of color in the garden.


The dahlia is a fabulous cutting flower for the home garden. Cut one bloom, and ten more appear on the plant. Blooming late summer to the first frost of autumn, this native of Mexico provides explosions of color in home gardens. The author’s commentary unearths the dahlia from its Aztec origins and imparts practical, hands-on knowledge for growing and overwintering these tropical plants in wintry climes.


Including classics like Café au Lait and lesser-known varieties like Voodoo and Honka, readers will discover a stunning range of specimens from tiny pompoms to heavy-headed dinner plates, to those that resemble daisies, sea anemones, and even fireworks!

The Anatomy of Treehouses : Stylish Hideaways and Retreats
By author: Jane Field-Lewis
Product Code: 48772
ISBN: 978-1-4236-4877-2
Publisher: Gibbs Smith
Binding Information: Hardback
Availability: In stock.
Price:  $30.00


Classy and quirky treehouses from around the world.

The treehouse in its most simple and fundamental form enables us to escape from the everyday pressures of modern life and feel closer to nature. It can also be an architectural wonder, showcasing the most creative of small space design, and used for businesses from restaurants to yoga retreats and sustainable housing solutions.

This beautiful book shows how the treehouse can be many things: from simple structures in tiny backyards to modern geodesic forms strung high up above the treeline. There is something magical about treehouses—whatever your age.

There are treehouses with woodburning stoves, some with four-poster beds, some with elevated walkways obscured by the canopy of trees above. Then there are the handmade simple structures using recycled materials and the branches of the trees for both internal and external support and design.

The Anatomy of Treehouses offers both visual inspiration and stories behind the creation of these treehouses. Details on the plan, structure, materials and decoration, color palette and texture, and style notes bring the stories to life.
