KIRKUS REVIEW

There's an immense amount of material here, brought together under fairly routine headings; good small gardens; wild flowers; city gardens; rock gardens; cutting gardens; terraces and patios; swimming pools; larger gardens; garden steps and paths; trees; lawns, hedges and shrubs; perennials; annuals; roses; bulbs; greenhouses; indoor gardening; flower arrangements; fruits; vegetables; herbs; garden calendar. Ten years of House and Garden have provided the pictures, most of them in full color, while the texts contribute an overall consideration of the basic principles and the detailed developments indicated by the pictures. While the general impression is of gardens at the level of substantial incomes, not necessarily large ones, there are sufficient practical hints for application at all levels.
