Review

"This book features 42 gorgeous, abundant tropical gardens around Manila and its suburbs. The photographs of lush tropical foliage and rich colors of the flowers are almost real enough to touch."—Chicago Botanic Garden


"Intended for "gardening enthusiasts," the full-color photos throughout this large-format book may inspire designers working in tropical settings. Brief text describes the landscapes, mostly residential, but the photos are the draw here for landscape architects."—Landscape Architecture Magazine

This is a book of beautiful photos of tropical gardens. The photos and the gardens are unusually nice. If you live in the tropics you might be inspired by some of the examples and designs. Otherwise it is nice to have just for the photos. It might make you want to retire to the tropics as I have done. I live in Panama which is a great place to retire for those who like tropical plants. We get lots of rain just like the Philippines. Anyhow some of the gardens shown in the book are really spectacular. I wish I could have some of the photos blown up and framed to put on my wall.

What a lovely book! It is filled with beautiful photographs of magnificent gardens. It makes me want to visit the Philippines to discover more of its hidden treasures. The book is nicely designed and has intriguing texts. I got a couple of copies to give away as gifts.

The pictures are so beautiful and lush! This is a fantastic coffee table book. Everyone that opens it up and leafs through the pages becomes inspired to work on their own gardens, big or small. My parents had the opportunity to visit Emily Campos' garden featured in the book. The woman has wonderful stories to tell. This is a great book to give as a gift!
