Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The authors say their book is for American gardeners who want maximum effect for minimum effort, yet discuss such things as double- and triple-digging the soil. The reader could glean the information to create a nice perennial flower gardenbut not an instant garden. The color photos included with the review galley are inspirational. Chapters cover design and planning, maintenance, and major perennial plants. There are some unusual ideas concerning color, music, and creating a symphony in the garden. There are lots of charts. A good planting guide, containing all the usual information, lists plants by genus name with the nice touch of a pronunciation guide. Recommended for organic gardening collections; landscape artists should also find it useful. Carole Ledford, Georgia Experiment Station Lib., Experiment
