Gardeners from all over the country have trekked to Connecticut to visit the perennial borders at Hillside Gardens. If they were lucky, Fred McGourty was there to give then a personal tour of the gardens he and his wife maintained and propagated. This book is much the same, giving the reader a tour of gardens with advice, ideas, and plant combinations that burst with color.
