Library Journal Review

An essential purchase, Jenkins's guide features glorious photographs and excellent descriptions of the very best gardens to visit in each U.S. state and some Canadian provinces. Each entry has a color-coded key that lists specific details for that particular garden (e.g., access for the handicapped, tours, whether pets are permitted, web sites, and more). (c) Copyright 2010.
