Sand & Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod and the Islands


This product is unavailable

The perfect how-to guide for gardening on Cape Cod and the islands.

Plants for screening, blue hydrangeas, salt tolerant plants, gardening for the seaside and sandy soil--the author deftly disentangles the many idiosyncrasies and potential pitfalls of growing a healthy and beautiful garden, both on the Cape and on the surrounding islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, a climate in equal measure challenging and rewarding.

C. L. Fornari has herself lived and gardened on the Cape for twenty-five years and is the author of many acclaimed gardening books, quite a number of them focusing on the Cape's growing conditions.

Complete with an index to help you navigate the parade of flowers, fungicides, and footstools, Sand & Soil will help you bring forth beautiful blooms from this legendary landscape.
