Reviews

Here is an educational gardening book that the Pacific Northwest coastal region has needed for a long time. Thank you, Carla, for putting together the 'good plant' lists with a wealth of first-hand gardening knowledge that lets the reader know that here is someone who 'walks the walk' and 'talks the talk' in west coast gardening. Carla has a writing style that makes for easy reading making the book even more valuable because it welcomes you to snuggle up and read a chapter or two on one of those rainy coastal days. Filled with down-to-earth gardening suggestions, this gardening manual is rounded out by a very complete discussion of the gardening pests, including weeds, animals and plant diseases, common to our coastal region. -- Ray and Jan McNeilan, authors of The Pacific Northwest Gardener's Book of Lists
The notion of micro-climate gardening is popping up increasingly. Coastal Gardening is Pacific Northwest Coast gardening for every gardener, offering innovative and practical garden solutions unique to Pacific Coast living as well as truly inspirational wisdom applicable to any gardeners' micro-climate. Thanks for a good read--I'm already planning ahead to next year. -- Marcia Grubb, president-elect, Oregon Master Gardener Association
Sure beach dwellers enjoy a long growing season, but they also face a wave of unique gardening challenges such as high winds, salt spray, sandy soil and excessive sun exposure. Carla Albright's book "Coastal Gardening in the Pacific Northwest" discusses easy ways to conquer these challenges and create a beautiful garden that is tough enough to withstand seashore assaults. While Albright lives in Portland, Ore., she offers plenty of advice useful to coastal mountain and dune gardeners in California. She also includes a quiz to assess the conditions in your garden, templates to record weather throughout the year, grids that help you design plant placement and a list of plants to avoid. * Los Angeles Daily News *
