This new, updated edition shows astonishingly beautiful spaces in a range of shoreline settings, including ocean dunes, rocky coasts, and wetlands. In addition to including 65 new photographs, this edition features a completely revamped and expanded Plant Encyclopaedic, with a new section on tropical plants and tender perennials. The book's lush photographs of seaside oases offer gardeners ideas for using colour, fashioning landscapes, creating patio and deck garden; and constructing ponds, paths and trellises. And a Practical Guide, comprising up-to-date information about sandy soil, salt water, deer, and other seaside predicaments, makes this a complete resource for anyone who gardens in this demanding environment.
