He speaks easily about his own failures and it is obvious from Mr. Scanlan's photographs that he has had plenty of successes. What I do especially enjoy about the book, aside from the intelligent writing, is the way the photographs really show groupings of plantings and what works as underplantings and mid-range planting etc. So many perennial books fall victim to the seduction of close-ups however M. canlan carefully avoids that trap.

Author (1): Patrick Lima Author (2): John Scanlan. Categories: Cold Climate Gardening. I have read it cover to cover many times. I particularly liked his chapter on clematis and roses, although I have yet to get any of my vines to look like his. The most amazing thing is that he started it all from scratch in a very cold climate! Positive.

This book is a real asset for the type of gardening that I am interested in perfecting which is a garden of interest with shrubs and perennials that are in their happiest place and strong enough to fight it out with anything invading their territory, and win. Patrick Lima (writer) and his partner John Scanlan(photographer) chronicle their journey of designing, planting and maintaining their garden, "Larkwhistle", noting
their triumphs and their failures. Mostly what we are treated to are the triumphs, what a very beautiful garden it is. Mr. Lima's informative style of writing is a pleasure to read packed with really useful information about many, many varieties of perennials with great tips (from his own experience) about grouping, color blending and yearly maintainance. He speaks easily about his own failures and it is obvious from Mr. Scanlan's photographs that he has had plenty of successes. What I do especially enjoy about the book, aside from the intelligent writing, is the way the photographs really show groupings of plantings and what works as underplantings and mid-range planting etc. So many perennial books fall victim to the seduction of close-ups however Mr.Scanlan carefully avoids that trap. For me this is a working book and I suppose it is destined to be smudged with dirt and plant stains as I drag it around in my cart but it has already helped me make a couple of good decisions for my ever evolving, challenging garden.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! This book took me from color to design to planning borders so that something is in bloom all the time. The photographs provided identification of plants and I have found myself returning to them again and again to study the author's compositions. I also shared his views on gardening's place in one's life. Highly recommend.

Patrick Lima is without question my favorite garden writer. He is knowledgable and witty, and really offers comprehensive material for gardening with perennials in a zone 4 region. I can't recommend this book highly enough. John's photos are spectacular.
