With a climate in equal measure challenging and rewarding, the Cape and Islands of Massachusetts provide a bold canvas for any would-be tamers of this unique landscape. In these pages, C.L. Fornari offers expert advice with the warm and casual tone of a broadly knowledgable and informed friend.
The author of many acclaimed gardening books, quite a number of them focusing on the Cape’s specific landscape and growing conditions, C.L. had lived and gardened on the Cape for twenty-five years herself. Drawing on her own experience, she deftly disentangles the many idiosyncrasies and potential pitfalls of growing a healthy and beautiful garden, both there and on the surrounding islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Complete with an index to help you navigate the parade of flowers, fungicides, and footstools, Sand & Soil is the perfect how-to survival guide to assuage your horticultural anxieties and bring forth beautiful blooms from the sandy soil of this legendary landscape.
