We love books and our extensive horticultural research library is important to the biodiversity preservation work that we do. There are many out-of-print books, now only available used, that are important sources of historical horticultural information. As time permits and opportunities arise, we work to locate titles that we feel may be of interest to our gardening friends. Our book inventory fluctuates. Most are out-of-print, rare, from publisher over-runs, or otherwise in limited supply. The condition of the books offered will be noted in red on the book's description page. No matter the condition, all books will be readable copies with no missing pages. Please click on a book title below for more information, availability and pricing.
Publisher Overstock / Returns - These are not "Used" but may have some minor wear on the edges of covers. Sometimes there will be a mark on the page edge and dust jackets may have some damage. The bindings are tight. Great for affordable gifts for your gardening friends and family or a cost effective way to add a title to your library at a discount.
Used - Usually involves general wear and tear, creases, rips, writing, marks, etc. The book is complete with no pages missing. Anything out of the ordinary will be duly noted.
Ex-Library / Withdrawn - These were once library books that we withdrawn from service. Condition can vary but in general they are generally similar in condition to used.
Rare - These are classic titles that are either long out of print, of limited or private printing or otherwise are not readily available. The condition on these titles will vary and will be noted in the description.
