Ken's latest book manages to combine the lush photos of a coffee-table tome with detailed advice and practical how-to explanations--a rare feat in the garden-book world. I've been a shade gardener for years but have learned a lot from "The New Shade Garden."

I might now finally be able to find an answer to my sunless side yard. Thanks to this beautifully photographed book, I have many ideas on how to grow a lush garden without sun. A must have for anyone with a low sun plot.

A fantastic shade garden book. Mr Druse's writing and photographs are both inspirational and extremely informative. He combines practical know how, environmental concern and beautiful garden design into a book that I know that I shall reference for many years to come. Highly recommend.

This is an up to date book loaded with good information and great photographs. I liked it so much I bought another to send as a gift!

I have all of Ken Druse's gardening books and this one doesn't disappoint. Beautiful photos, relevant advice, and lots of suggestions for growing wonderful things in the shade.

As with every Ken Druse book, it is beautiful to look at and packed full of solid and useful information. Every new release is a reason to celebrate.

This book was a help in choosing plants for my shady spot, sunny spot garden. I recommend it, especially if you have shade or semishade.

Like his former Natural Shade Garden, this is a beautiful book with gorgeous photos.
