Now we can take in the gardens at Chelsea without suffering the 6 days of crowds or the jetlag.... This book showcases a broad diversity of recent vignettes. It's a good read if you have done or plan to do a show garden.... Yet the focus of the book is the real life take away and each case study specifically highlights features that might translate into actual landscapes. The author is successful in examining what makes a display effective in total, but also dwells on the details... Chapters full of photos of hardscape, water, lighting or art provide hundreds of novel ideas both grandiose and simple.--Colleen Miko"The B and B Magazine, Washington State Nursery and" (10/01/2011)
