Many gardeners already know that we connect specific plants to our memories of times and places. This charming book of tales is about that magic of self-discovery, memory, and human connections transmitted through botany. Illustrated with folksy watercolors, the stories are supplemented with simple propagation tips for the plants that connect to the memories. Using the suggestions here, start a rosebush from the rose in your wedding bouquet, remember Grandma's hollyhock from a cutting of the plant by her clothesline, enjoy onions in your garden descending from a gift of an onion at a B&B where you spent a week, or plant a balsam fir at the end of the driveway to remind you of Christmas.
