Booklist Review

These two picture-rich volumes explore the important role vines play in utilizing vertical garden space in a variety of innovative ways to convert even the most unpromising site into a place of natural beauty. Barash offers a practical approach to using vines and climbers as support players, maximizing the growing space in the garden. Chock-full of practical suggestions, this lively and well-illustrated book emphasizes the best ways to incorporate vertically inclined plants and add color and depth in the hardscape. Beautifully photographed and brimming with useful information, Jefferson-Brown's comprehensive directory of plant varieties offering year-round appeal provides guidance on planning, planting, and sure-to-succeed methods of growing and siting more than 500 climbing and wall-hugging plants to create diverse, multidimensional gardens. --Doris Taylor
