One of the best resources for over a decade... -- Bellingham Herald (Bellingham, WA), June 1, 2002

From the Publisher

Stephanie Feeney has been combing the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia for nearly a decade now, finding all the shops, nurseries, gardens and other fabulous resources that make this the horticultural paradise it is. The Seventh Edition of this internationally acclaimed Directory--what Fine Gardening termed "a model of what a regional guide should be"--now is bigger, better, and more thorough than ever! This Guide Makes it a Snap to Find: * Over 350 nurseries, including those small, hard-to-find specialty "gems", complete with addresses, hours, driving directions and full descriptions * Over 200 mail-order sources for seeds, plants, tools, equipment, books and information * Over 300 e-mail and Internet Web sites of interest to gardeners from around the world * Over 200 international, national and regional clubs and organizations for every conceivable horticultural interest * Dozens of reviews of books, magazines and specialty journals * Sources for hard-to-find supplies and materials--from the essential (stone and organics, perhaps) to the bizarre ("Not Tonight Deer" and "Zoo Doo")

And all NEW in this edition: Complete coverage of the fabulous
* gardening resources of western Oregon More than triple the British
* Columbia resources from the previous edition A geographic locator to
* help you plan your trips and excursions throughout the region Guest
* Essays contributed by some of the most interesting and knowledgeable
* gardening writers of the Pacific Northwest--people like Dan Hinkley
* of world-renowned Heronswood Nursery, Arthur Lee Jacobson, a winner
* of the 1996 American Horticultural Society Book Award and

Format: Paperback
It's a Northwest garden enthusiast's dream come true! Stephanie Feeney has outdone herself and compiled information in this edition I will refer to again and again. The list of nurserys to visit is complete with directions, business hours, the types of plants they sell and what they specialize in, e-mail addresses, and any other helpful information that may be of interest. I especially appreciate the geographic locator in the very back that breaks down locations by region that makes planning a garden outing a breeze. I even found a few nurseries in my small town that I didn't know existed. Other chapters include organizations that help gardeners, clubs, foundations, societies and volunteer opportunities, education, gardening with children and young people, internet gardening, publications, professional services, gardens to visit, shows and exhibits, and the list goes on. And it's all written in a friendly personal manner.

Format: Paperback
As an information junkie, I'm always turning to the Internet for fast and up-to-date information for my garden design business. This book has replaced my computer for first-glance information. Debra provides significant editorial value in this reference, which I find dog-eared and well-used in a few short weeks. A must-have for any gardener in the Northwest, and a brilliant gift for a gardener new to the area.

I bought this book to replace the one I gave to a friend, it's invaluable as a resource guide for nurserys both brick and mortar and on-line. Would love to see it get updated.
