Now in paperback, this classic book invites gardeners into some of America's most fascinating private gardens. Through over 400 color photographs of 28 gardens across the country, Ken Druse shows how gardeners can "collect" plants for their pleasure, without sacrificing their devotion to the natural garden or abandoning good design. Listings of plant sources, societies, and organizations have been updated for this edition. "The Collector's Garden" is the recipient of the Garden Writers Association Quill & Trowel Award for Best Photography (Book), and The American Horticultural Society's Annual Book Award.
