Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Books about small gardens are difficult to find, and this one will be well received by beginners looking to beautify a small space. Don (The Sensuous Garden, LJ 8/97), who gardened in London for ten years, begins by outlining his personal requirements for a town garden and proceeds logically to chapters on planning, ground cover, vertical space, flowers, containers, shrubs, vegetables, pests, and accessories. This is a beautifully designed book written in a friendly, knowledgeable voice that's never too technicalAjust what one would expect from an author who's previously won the Inspirational Gardening Book award. This is a British book, so some plant suggestions may not be entirely appropriate for all U.S. gardens, but it makes a nice supplement to Linda Yang's classic works on the subject and the new utilitarian Taylor guide, Small Gardens: How To Get the Most Impact from the Least Space by Glenn Morris (Houghton, 1999). Highly recommended for public libraries.ABonnie Poquette, Shorewood P.L., WI
