Gardens of the Caribbean
Jill Collett, Patrick Bowe

9 3/4" x 7 1/4" • 199 pages • full color throughout
ISBN 9780333688199 • paperback • $20.00

A unique and fascinating introduction to the wealth of cultivated gardens open to the public throughout the region. Whether read in the comfort of an armchair or while actually exploring a particular island, this beautifully illustrated work of reference is an ideal guide for the professional horticulturist and keen amateur alike.

Written from an historical perspective, the book also gives an up to date description of the indigenous plants peculiar to each island and examines crucial differences in climate and soil. It also details the origins of the Botanical Garden and its importance in the protection of rare species. A wide selection of gardens are featured which provide a real feel for the diversity of plant life in the region as well as shedding new light on the complexity and beauty of the Caribbean as a whole.
