Stephanie Feeney has been combing the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia for nearly a decade now, finding all the nurseries, shops, gardens and other fabulous resources that make this the horticultural paradise it is. The Seventh Edition of this internationally acclaimed Directory--what Fine Gardening termed "a model of what a regional guide should be"--now is bigger, better and more thorough than ever!

  • Over 350 nurseries, including those small, hard-to-find specialty "gems", complete with addresses, hours, driving directions and full descriptions
  • Over 200 mail-order sources for seeds, plants, equipment, books and information to help gardeners
  • Over 300 e-mail and Internet Web sites of interest to gardeners from around the world
  • Over 200 international, national and regional clubs and organizations for every conceivable horticultural interest
  • Dozens of reviews of books, magazines and specialty journals
  • Sources for hard-to-find supplies and materials--from the essential (stone and organics, perhaps) to the bizarre (mink manure and "Zoo Doo")

And all NEW:

  • Complete coverage of the fabulous gardening resources of Oregon--nurseries, gardens to visit, shops--The Works!
  • More than triple the British Columbia resources from the previous edition
  • A geographic locator section to help you plan your trips and excursions throughout the region
  • Guest Essays contributed by some of the most interesting and knowledgable gardening writers of the Pacific Northwest--people like Dan Hinkley of world-renowned Heronswood Nursery and Arthur Lee Jacobson, to name just two.
  • A warm, witty and humorously insightful Foreword contributed by Ketzel Levine, National Public Radio's "Doyenne of Dirt".

The Northwest Gardeners' Resource Directory is the most comprehensive, current and entertaining guide available to area gardening enthusiasts from the bewildered novice to the experienced veteran. It makes a thoughtful gift for a new retiree, a new neighbor or someone new to the area or as a "thank you" to a host or special client. It is also useful as a travel planner when visiting the Northwest on business or vacation.
