Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Using her own Washington State garden and other distinctive gardens across the country as examples, Lovejoy explores the satisfactions and possibilities of planting a mixed border in America. Developed from the English herbaceous border, the mixed border incorporates perennials, shrubs, trees, bulbs, vines, annuals, grasses, and groundcovers to produce a long-season, and, according to Lovejoy, more easily maintained garden. After a brief history of the mixed border, she presents a chapter on each component and its most effective use in the border. Rather than providing long plant lists, Lovejoy describes plants with an eye to their combination with other materials, displaying not only a depth of botanical knowledge but a painter's eye and a gift for description. Perhaps not for the rank beginner, this should, with Pamela Harper's Designing with Perennials Macmillan, 1991 stand on the shelves of those who look for more creative ways to use plants.-- Molly Newling, Piscataway P . L . , N.J.
Alice Joyce
A number of classic gardens are employed to illustrate Lovejoy's advice on creating a distinctive garden designed with special attention paid to mixing trees and shrubs with annuals and perennials of all kinds. Outstanding gardens of historical importance, such as Lawrence Johnston's Hidcote Manor, are evaluated along with little-known but truly inspired American gardens from Washington state to Vermont. And the author's own delightful brand of horticultural wisdom sheds light on the component parts of a mixed border, and appropriate plantings for various USDA zones. For clearly explained design principles and plenty of practical tips in a handsome format, this all-around gardening book will prove useful for all areas of the country.
