Editorial Reviews

Fine Gardening
A masterwork...infused with a love of gardening...A book as comprehensive, as easy to use, and as beautiful as this doesn't come along often.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The multivolume Taylor's Guide series is unparalleled for its horticultural authority. This new entry consolidates material within two covers for easy reference for North American gardeners. So for basic information on plant types, garden planning and design, theme gardens, soil, maintenance and lawns, this is the place to look. Buchanan, once an editor of Fine Gardening magazine, and Holmes, that magazine's founding editor, have collaborated on previous Taylor volumes, assembling a raft of contributors and consultants, and bring their expertise to bear on a range of detailed advice. They discuss use of color, not just in flowering plants but ground covers; which annuals to grow in winter (e.g., petunias), where climate permits; urge imagination in suburban settings too often oppressed by a uniformity of vision in design; and explain how to "plug'' a meadow with seedlings. A large portion of the book examines individual plants and their preferred habitats and cultivation methods. Few gardeners will want to do without this book. Illustrated. 50,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo; Garden Book Club main selection; Rodale Book Club selection; BOMC alternate. (Oct.)
Library Journal
A solid single volume that takes the reader through the garden planning process, then provides high-quality photos and text on the most popular garden trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals. A good choice for all public and horticultural libraries. (LJ 9/1/94) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
A hefty new work--not compiled from the excellent Taylor's Guides to Gardening Series or Taylor's Master Guide to Gardening, first published 58 years ago. Geared specifically for North American gardeners, it features an encyclopedia of some 3,000 species with where-to-use and how-to-grow information; a color photo gallery of 1,000 of the best plants; and major sections on creating and maintaining a garden. A splendid reference diminished, unfortunately, by flat reproduction of the otherwise excellent color photos. 9.5x12.5" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
