Synopsis: A presentation of some of America's most beautiful and most interesting gardens. 27 men take the author on an informal tour of their properties across the United States and Canada. This is the sequel to The American Woman's Garden.
From Publishers Weekly:
Esteemed English gardener and writer Verey ( The American Woman's Garden ) goes about her task of surveying gardens tilled by American males with a refreshing lack of agenda: all she is searching for is invigorating cultivated greenery. It is here in elegance and abundance, in words and pictures. The gardeners selected, who tell their stories in their own words, number 27, and they are as farflung as the continent will allow, from the desert fantasy of Cliff Douglas in Mesa, Ariz., to the enchantingly old-fashioned restored Victorian garden of George Radford in (Victoria BC) (as a Canadian, the book's single exception). Every reader will have a favorite, whether the carefully orchestrated expanses of Williams Banks's grounds in Newnan, Ga. ("I strive for mass effects"), or the slightly maverick beauty of Robert Dash's 1.91 acres on Long Island, N.Y. (Dash's testimony is the book's most eloquent). Thumbnail sketches of the gardeners reveal that most are professional designers or landscapers, which accounts for a rosy perfection of plot. But humility lends a nearly constant scent: "I was nowhere near where I wanted to be in gardening skills then," Dash confides, "and still am not."
