What People Are Saying

Phyllis M. Faber
What an outstanding treasure EBMUD has assembled for Bay Area gardeners! This book is simply stunning. It is beautifully designed with abundant photographs of plants, many in garden settings, and is packed with the kind of information gardeners need for their own special situations. Bravo! University of California Press
Katherine Greenberg
This book is a valuable resource for climate-compatible gardening in the Bay Area that will also be of interest to gardeners in other parts of the world with a similar seasonal pattern of winter rain and dry summers. It will occupy a prominent place in my library for many years to come. President, Mediterranean Garden Society
Katherine Grace Endicott
This is a truly fine book. It's hard to imagine how anyone would want a stuffy old English garden after seeing the beautiful gardens featured here! I liked and used the previous EBMUD plant book, but this one is off the charts. Highest recommendations. columnist, San Francisco Chronicle, and author, Northern California Gardening
