    Congrats on Garden Up as one of the Best Books for 2011!

    Thank you! It wouldn't have happened without awesome contributors like yourself!

    I absolutely love Pennisetum 'firecracker'. I planted one last year and thought that I lost it. It came back in spring and much bigger. I need to plant more of it around my garden. Another grass I love is calamogrostis foliosa.

    You and I must be plant "soul sisters". I love C. foliosa as well - gorgeous when it's flowering. That's encouraging to hear about the Pennisetum. Hoping I'm lucky as well.

    Congratulations on Garden Up! you truly have it growing on and I am honored to be growing in the garden with you... Annie <|;-)

    We love having a picture of Moo Poo tea in the book! I tell folks in my presentations I've used it to fertilize my Woolly Pockets wall.


    Great plants that you chose to highlight. Especially the succulent. I think I'll try Pennisetum ‘Firecracker’ even though it may not survive the winter in my zone 8a garden.

    I'm zone 9 and a Sunset zone 14 - I'm hopeful, but not counting on it. It's worth it even as an annual, though. Good luck!

    Oh Susan darling, thanks for the shout out! Just check us out ...
    You are a genius, partly just because you ARE, and partly because I agree with every one of your plant choices - I have used all of them this year and I absolutely concur. Hmmm - maybe it is a little self -serving that I call you a genius because that means that I also consider myself a genius, and far be it from me to have such an enormous ego.
    But still - GENIUS!
    (I especially love the pennisetum and the santolina - such great taste you have...)

    I'm glad you approve! Every time I walk by that cute little santolina, it makes me smile.

    Fantastic, you two. Congratulations! You are garden Amazons in every way.

    Now I KNOW there's a tagline in there for me somewhere!
