The Harrowsmith Perennial Garden; Flowers for Three Seasons

By Lima, Patrick

Camden East, Ontario: Camden House Publishing, 1987 This book is a genuine Harrowsmith publication which came out just before the magazine was sold. I count myself lucky to have known it from the start, and to have had an article published in Issue 12 which was included in the first hardcover Harrowsmith Reader. Perennial Garden has the same feel of authenticity and accuracy engendered by the original magazine. Colour photos from a variety of artists are superb. I found faint, scattered highlighting on 11 of the 158 pp, which include an index.. Hard Cover. Good Plus to Very Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Derek Fell, John Scanlan, et al. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
