Summary

Summary

The author has visited beautiful gardens of every imaginable style and design, and written about them in joyous fashion. Special features are the inclusion of extraordinary winery gardens in California's Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties, plus a myriad of nurseries with some of the most beautiful display gardens one can hope to find. To enhance a visit to these gardens, a selection of singularly marvellous bed-and-breakfasts and country inns has been added. The text includes glossaries of garden terms, and garden plants which will help the casual visitor to enjoy the experience of each garden visit.

Booklist Review

(It is Booklist policy that a book written by a regular contributor receive a brief description rather than a recommending review.) Expert gardener Joyce describes extraordinary coastal gardens, including winery gardens in California's Napa, Sonoma, and Mendocino counties, and display gardens and nurseries of all kinds in Southern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. Recommended lodgings, a glossary, and a "Resources for Gardeners" section are also provided. --Donna Seaman
