Picks and Pans Review: Town Gardens

UPDATED 06/04/1990 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 06/04/1990 at 01:00 AM EDT

by Caroline Boisset

Boisset, a garden historian and horticulturist, has written a useful book for anyone longing to landscape shady, cramped spaces. Follow the architectural style of your house, she advises, then use paths and plants to draw the eye to an urn, a statue or a pool. The final section includes excellent descriptions of trees and shrubs for the garden framework; hedges and climbing plants for privacy, and perennials, annuals and bulbs for beds and containers. (Little, Brown, $40.00)
