(Victoria, BC) - For a truly sensational garden this season, try the world's largest community of independent booksellers. The online book site has over 84,000 rare, used, and out-of print books on gardening, including thousands of beautiful old books that green thumbs would never find anywhere else.

Let our gardening titles add a unique touch to your reference shelf, or a vintage character to your patio book collection. Add a nostalgic twist with a book like the 1978 book, A Victorian Flower Album, or the 1990 Garden Tales - Classic Stories from Famous Writers. Make a wonderful space for your children with help from the 1998 Childs Garden: Enchanting Outdoor Spaces for Children and Parents, or the 1989 Kids Gardening: A Kid's Guide to Messing Around in the Dirt. Use the wisdom from the past to fill out your potato harvesting strategy with the 1906 book, The Potato: A Practical Treatise on the Potato, its Characteristics, Planting, Cultivation, Harvesting, Storing, or to follow up on gardening trends from decades gone by. Or browse the old gardening lessons of the Journal of the Royal Horticultural Society from the early 1900s - you'll be amazed at what you'll learn. Give our independent booksellers a test run! With such a huge gardening section, you'll find virtually any gardening book that was ever printed.

Abebooks is the world's largest book site, listing over 35 million books. With offices in Canada and Germany, abebooks provides independent booksellers with business support, technological infrastructure and international marketing, enabling booksellers of any size to compete on an equal footing with book superstores. Through its acquisition of Germany's JustBooks, now abebooks Europe, the company now serves over 10,000 member booksellers worldwide via web sites in English, German, and French. Abebooks was launched on the Internet in May of 1996 and offers consumers the most complete collection of rare, used, and out-of-print books available anywhere.
