B. B. Mackey Books is an independent publisher of garden books and CD's based in Wayne, Pennsylvania, which I run and own. I am a writer, photographer, editor, and lecturer, and a long-time member of the Garden Writers Association. The authors who work with me and I do lectures, slide shows, and demonstrations for horticultural and community groups. Email me for author contact information. -- Betty Mackey.

Book Subjects. Most of the books are on specialized subjects and include hard-to-find information, prepared in an interesting and useful way, often with gentle humor. I publish books on rock gardening and troughs, southern gardening, books for Florida, garden journals for your own notes, and garden stories. The newest book is Fairy Gardens, by Betty Earl, which tells how to plant and furnish your own, and coming soon is Aphid in my Eye, by Thomas Powell (acclaimed editor of the Avant Gardening horticultural newsletter), telling how he and his wife Betty fell into the obsessive world of competitive orchid growing and had many adventures.

Products and Ordering. There are PayPal links for purchasing the books, notecards, and CD featured on this website. Paypal is a trusted online merchant service and allows you to use your Paypal account or your crediit card for purchases without giving your credit card info to each vendor and website you shop from. I have used Paypal for years with great results. Books and Products for Sale
