The Making of A Canadian GardenBook - 1996
Stonygroundis the book for all true lovers of gardens. Douglas Chambers chronicles the trials and triumphs of his ten-year (and on-going) labour of love to turn his family's 150-year-old farm into a celebration of garden history and design - a labour that created remarkable vegetable and herb gardens, the multi-hued Great garden, a profusion of roses, the linden hedge-on-sticks, trees and shrubs to offset the driving northern winds, and much more. This unique gardening book is a treasury for all types of gardeners, and will enthral readers to the last page.
