A Garden Miscellany


Cover of book

My new book, A Garden Micellany: An Illustrated Guide to the Elements of the Garden is coming from Timber Press in October of 2019. This was a fun book to write. Lots of history, anecdotes, and information.

I am very excited. There have been numerous events throughout New England – talks and booksignings with more to come.


A Garden Miscellany is available at most bookstores bricks and mortar and online. You can find an independent bookstore near you  here: IndieBound.
