In a warm & unpretentious style, Valchar guides the reader through his 2.4-acre garden in Connecticut's challenging climate. A charming & inspiring book particularly for gardeners in the Northeast.From Library Journal:
The title says it all--this is a tour of the author's 2.4-acre garden, complete with his personal observations and wisdom about plant performance and garden design. Not a "how-to" book, this is instead an inspiration and idea book for garden aficionados. Valchar begins with a description of each area (rose garden, rock garden, native garden) accompanied by 75 gorgeous photographs. Part 2 is an encyclopedia of recommended plants that perform well for the author in his climate. Intermediate gardeners will relish the author's expertise as well as his entertaining writing style: "My attitude toward deer has changed very gradually over the years and eventually the innocent pleasure of seeing them in my backyard... turned into a sense of being mugged several times a week." Highly recommended for zones 5 and 6.
