Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With full-color photographs throughout and complete advice for shade gardening in every region of the country, this guide will help any gardener or homeowner make the most of shady spots.

While much has been written in recent years about flower borders, this newest title in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's spectacular 21st-Century Gardening Series is the first to instruct gardeners in creating a spectacular border in low-light areas. "The Shady Border" will surprise readers with the many combinations of plant color, form, and texture that are possible in a shady garden.

"The Shady Border" includes instructions for gardeners in the Northwest, Northeast, Southeast, and Midwest regions, as well as ideas for designing shade gardens for every season. The "Encyclopedia of Shade Perennials", which makes up the bulk of the book, describes nearly 70 plants appropriate for dry, moist, and wet shade.

Suggestions for further reading and nursery sources are also included.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p.103) and index.
