Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
There's no doubt about it: Stewart ( Weddings ), from all appearances, has lushly productive gardens. With the help of Zeschin, an award-winning magazine photographer, she has produced an equally lush book. It's lovely to look at, but it isn't going to teach gardeners--novice or experienced--anything new or fill their minds with information they couldn't get more easily (and less expensively) in extant volumes. Chapters treat the months of the year consecutively and tell us what to do, horticulturally, with them: February, for example, is a good time to prune fruit trees, while December is best spent doting on houseplants and holiday preparations. Interspersed throughout are directions for drying flowers, gilding pumpkins, painting urns and then some; the book authentically reflects the author's wide-ranging domestic interests. Considering all the acreage, and the hours, represented by the fruits of her labor, Stewart's assiduously picturesque tome may leave readers rather breathless. 250,000 first printing; ad/promo; Better Homes and Gardens main , BOMC HomeStyle alternate; author tour; (Nov.)
Library Journal
This is the ultimate garden journal and, as typical of its kind, is intensely personal. It illustrates the gardening year on Stewart's six acres at Westport, Connecticut, and is filled with photographs of Stewart pruning, raking, digging, transplanting, as well as recipes and monthly lists. Some information is probably found nowhere else how to antique a cement planter, how to gild a pumpkin; however, the cultural information will be duplicated in any basic gardening guide. The main interest is in Zeschin's photographs; Stewart's strong visual sense shows on every page, whether of a sweep of perennial border or a shelf of empty vases in the workshop. Buy where interest in the Stewart lifestyle is high and budgets are deep. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 7/91.-- Molly Newling, Piscataway P.L., N.J.

Another slick product put together by the corporate entity which masquerades behind the persona of Martha Stewart--cook, hostess, and gardener nonpareil. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
