HEROES OF HORTICULTURE: Americans Who Transformed the Landscape

Robinson's book celebrates eighteen heroes of horticulture - institution builders, plant explorers and garden creators - who have all had a major impact on the American landscape. Three of them worked together to establish The Garden Conservancy to preserve exceptional gardens for the public. Others came to the rescue to restore and enhance public parks and public spaces, setting new standards for aesthetics and encouraging wider public use. While some have taken on the revitalization of botanic gardens, important to science and public education as well as public enjoyment, others have worked to create new outstanding public gardens.


Jane Garmey & Mick HalesJane Garmey & Mick Hales


With text by noted garden writer Jane Garmey and photography by distinguished landscape and design photographer Mick Hales, this book takes readers inside many of New York's gardens, including the Cloisters, Green-Wood Cemetery, Carl Schurz Park, Wave Hill, the 9/11 Memorial Garden, the Noguchi Museum, and the Willis Ave. Community Garden. City Green is an essential companion for New Yorkers and the ideal gift for garden-lovers, tourists, and former New York residents nostalgic for the city's parks and gardens.  Both Jane & Mick will be signing books.

Copies of these great books for gardeners and other titles will be available for purchase throughout the day from Oblong Books.
