Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Distinguished from basic "how-to" books for people who want to design and install a pond (although these topics are covered), this is an information-packed reference to understanding the water characteristics of a piece of property--the subtle and profound characteristics of timing, amount, duration, and quality--and choosing plants in light of their habitat preferences and growth habits. The color photos are useful, but flat; the value of this reference does not lie in its visuals. Paper edition (unseen), $18.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Meet the Author


Judy Glattstein is a garden consultant and the author of several gardening books—Bulbs for Garden Habitats is her third book on bulbs—and numerous magazine and newspaper articles. She is a popular instructor at the New York Botanical Garden and the Cook College Office of Continuing Professional Education at Rutgers University and lectures widely both in the United States and abroad. An enthusiastic gardener, she finds less time available for her own garden in western New Jersey than she would like; nonetheless, the tens of thousands of bulbs she's planted return year after year whether or not she finishes all her garden chores.
