Taylor's Guide to Seashore Gardening
Houghton Mifflin, 1996 - Gardening - 391 pages
The seashore garden is unique in the landscaping world. Here, fragile blooms thrive in spite of, or because of, the harsh elements. All seashores have in common the sun, wind, salt spray, and sudden storms, but beyond these elements, the conditions are different. This book has separate chapters for seashore gardening in different types of terrain and soil. An encyclopedia of more than 350 plants for the shore is illustrated with full-color photographs.
