Editorial Reviews Review

Ann Lovejoy describes Cascadia as a gardener's paradise, but it's an Eden with steady winter rains and long summer draughts. This has spawned an abundance of gardening wisdom even for those who don't live within the perimeters of northern California to British Columbia. With sage monthly advice on encouraging the blooms that thrive in one's local soil and weather, and opulently gorgeous pictures by Sandra Lee Reha, Lovejoy's garden visions are exceptionally refreshing and inspirational.

From Library Journal

Lovejoy, the garden columnist for the Seattle Intelligencer, ambitiously attempts to survey the garden styles of the Pacific Northwest region west of the Cascade Mountains (southern British Columbia to northern California). She also endeavors to provide seasonal horticultural advice for gardeners in the west Cascadian region. Unfortunately, her sweeping treatment is highly cursory and lacks critical horticultural detail. For instance, Lovejoy presents an erroneously simplistic picture of the extremely diverse climates of the area, lumping them into the relatively mild USDA plant hardiness zones 8 and 9. However, there is tremendous climatic variability in the area, which includes some of the coldest regions in the western United States. In addition, many of the plants and gardens featured are not specifically identified, and the book lacks a list of garden and arboreta addresses?critical information for the reader interested in visiting the places exemplifying the garden styles that Lovejoy highlights. A breezy teaser for general readers only; otherwise, not recommended.?Brian Lym, Strybing Arboretum Society Lib., San Francisco
