Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Creating a garden in a coastal area can be daunting, even for those who have mastered the techniques of inland gardening. Wind, sand, salt, and scorching sun all combine to create a unique set of challenges. Frances Tenenbaum, who has gardened for decades on Martha's Vineyard, knows these challenges intimately and has learned how to meet them. Whether you garden on the cool, foggy Pacific Coast, the New England and Mid-Atlantic shore, or the warm southeastern Atlantic Coast, the techniques in this book will enable you to create a lush, welcoming garden that can brave the elements. As Tenenbaum admits, it took her years of experimentation to learn how to garden successfully in coastal conditions. Luckily, you don't have to relive her failures: the answers are right here.

Synopsis:

Whether you live on the East or West Coast, the practical, experience-tested advice in this concise volume will take the mystery out of gardening on or near the shore, and enable you to add color and greenery to your patch of sun and sand.
