Six top books on gardening

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of six top books on gardening:
American Grown: The Story of the White House Garden and Gardens Across America
by Michelle Obama

A book born from the First Lady's planting of her own kitchen garden in 2009, American Grown proves a multifaceted conversation-starter about the satisfactions of growing one's own food, as well an inquiry into good health and nutrition worldwide, citing instances of gardening as community outreach through the United States. Despite an address at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Obama proves a humble and determined guide, walking readers through her own botanical trials and errors -- and unique recipes -- with an admirable ardor for all things arbor.
