Editorial Reviews

Review

"For vegetable gardening in the Bay Area, Golden Gate Gardening is indispensable — if you buy one gardening book, this is the one."
Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food and The Omnivore's Dilemma
 
"Every Bay Area gardener knows that, in addition to a copy of the Western Garden Book, you MUST have Golden Gate Gardening in your library."
Sunset

"...an excellent gardening book, of particular value for those living where the ocean fogs influence the gardening climate, but with substantial new material for those living just beyond the fog's reach."
Pacific Horticulture

"For 17 years, Bay Area gardeners have relied on Pam Peirce's authoritative 'Golden Gate Gardening' as their go-to resource for no-nonsense general instruction on nurturing fruits, vegetables and herbs in the home garden."
San Jose Mercury News

"...exceptionally thorough, authoritative and readable. It is a rare combination of solid science, practical experience and a conversational style of writing... The good chapters keep coming. Look for clear practical information on garden planning, improving garden soil, buying seeds and other starts, getting plants started and watering. The book also has very good sections on pests, diseases and annual and perennial weeds."
The Monterey Herald

"We'll admit it--we're envious of gardeners who live in regions covered by this magnificent book . . . a Laurel's Kitchen for California mid-coastal gardeners."
HortIdeas

"Peirce writes in a clear, easily understandable style. Charts show plants that thrive in fog and those that grow in sun. Month-by-month graphs identify plant and harvest schedules for year-round bounty. Included is advice on soil, composting, pest and weed control, detailed instructions for many favorite fruits, vegetables and herbs, and a few well-tested recipes for enjoying the harvest."
Marin Independent Journal

"My very favorite Bay Area gardening book is Golden Gate Gardening, a work of genius written by Pam Peirce.  I love the book so much that when I speak to serious SF Bay Area gardeners and find that they don’t own it I’m shocked.  I reference it anytime I plant something new and frequently before harvesting a new crop."
