In GARDENING on California's Coast, Julie Monson combines her Master Gardener knowledge with her own experience creating her Japanese inspired garden.  This book provides practical information with an emphasis on gardening as a satisfying creative endeavor.  Her nine chapters cover landscaping with trees, shrubs, flowers, food and ground covers; pruning and maintenance; ending with a chapter on the positive links between gardening, gardens and health.

This book provides advice for novice and experienced gardeners who garden on California's coast and inland areas sharing California's coastal climate.  The book is both a practical guide and a beautiful addition to any gardener's library.
