Since the early 1990s Leila Hadley has tended to her paradise-like garden at her house on Fishers Island, on Long Island Sound. Here she shares her wealth of experience in seaside gardening and offers a very informative and entertaining how-to book. Written with a conversational tone and accompanied by gorgeous, lavish color photographs, this book serves as a comprehensive and practical guide for beginner and advanced gardeners alike. Starting from the ground up, Leila Hadley built an all-organic garden and bird sanctuary that defies the most difficult gardening conditions. She sprinkles her trials and triumphs throughout the text, which includes maps and charts on annuals, perennials, indoor and outdoor planting, tips on how to keep a coastal garden thriving even in long winter months, as well as substantial information on gardening in other regions and climactic conditions. The ultimate book for creating and cultivating a garden and deriving joy and satisfaction in the process, A Garden by the Sea is destined to become a gardening classic.
