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)
George Cohen
This informative Garden Book Club selection, illustrated with 32 pages of color photos, is a comprehensive guide to a beautiful form of gardening--waterscaping. Glattstein provides useful data on identifying and classifying such wet areas as wet meadows, marshes, and pools; discusses a selection of appropriate plants (some 400 in all, including grasses, sedges, rushes, and ferns); suggests garden combinations and designs; and gives instructions for installing pools and setting up container water gardens. She points out that gardeners no longer need large spaces for water gardening; the small backyard, the town-house patio, and the apartment terrace are all viable sites.

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.
