About this title

Synopsis:

In this splendid collection of short essays, gardener, writer, and professor Allen Lacy takes readers on a series of garden excursions, beginning at home. Lacy writes of his experiences with a variety of plants—evening primrose, prairie gentian, sumac, coreopsis, fuchsias, gloriosa lilies—in his own garden in New Jersey. Then he charts his travels to other gardens, in the United States, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands. Final essays in Farther Afield include a discussion of garden writing, profiles of other horticulturists, and humorous pieces on cats and houseplants, and, of course, flamingoes.

About the Author:

Allen Lacy is professor of philosophy at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and the author of numerous books on gardening, including The Garden in Autumn and The Glory of Roses. He lives in Linwood, New Jersey.
