The Layered Garden

amanda_m(z7 MD)February 27, 2013

I am reading (and obsessively looking at the pictures in) the book The Layered Garden by David L. Culp.

The thing I love, love, love about this book is that his garden is in Pennsylvania, about two hours from me (I'm in Baltimore) and it's fantastic to see what can be done in a middlish-Atlantic garden.

So many of the garden blogs and garden books I look at are from California or the PNW, and I get so crazed looking at things they can grow there (citrus in the front yard!) that isn't going to grow here. Sometimes I find myself feeling bitter against the "other coast." And then I see this amazing garden right, so close, and I think, "I can grow those!"

Has anyone else read it?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I'll have to look for the book in the library to read it.
