Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Using her own Washington State garden and other distinctive gardens across the country as examples, Lovejoy explores the satisfactions and possibilities of planting a mixed border in America. Developed from the English herbaceous border, the mixed border incorporates perennials, shrubs, trees, bulbs, vines, annuals, grasses, and groundcovers to produce a long-season, and, according to Lovejoy, more easily maintained garden. After a brief history of the mixed border, she presents a chapter on each component and its most effective use in the border. Rather than providing long plant lists, Lovejoy describes plants with an eye to their combination with other materials, displaying not only a depth of botanical knowledge but a painter's eye and a gift for description. Perhaps not for the rank beginner, this should, with Pamela Harper's Designing with Perennials (Macmillan, 1991) stand on the shelves of those who look for more creative ways to use plants.

Format: Hardcover
Beautifully written, well informed. Takes you step by step into the world of coordinating trees, shrubs, and perennials in the garden border. My copy is dog eared from use!
