The Garden Trellis is an exquisitely illustrated, yet very practical garden gift book. Within its covers, gardeners will be inspired to incorporate small trellises in their gardens and will learn how to build nine simple but elegant designs. A section of thirty fully-illustrated plant profiles will help them choose vines--honeysuckle or roses, porcelain berries or moon flowers--that are appropriate for their gardens and for particular trellis designs.


Written and illustrated by Ferris Cook, The Garden Trellis is suffused with personal experience as well as horticultural detail and lore. Cook--editor of Garden Dreams (1991) and Invitation to the Garden (1992)--draws upon her own gardening observations to explain how she first approached trellises and vines and what she has learned about them. Filled with anecdotes, this charming book also contains an abundance of practical information. Clear and concise instructions for building the trellises, and a list of materials needed, make The Garden Trellis tremendously useful. It will convince gardeners that trellises can be easy to build and that they can transform their gardens with simple vertical accents. A list of sources for ready-made trellises, plants, and seeds will help even the novice trellis gardener get started.
