Ideal for planning excursions for day-trips, weekend getaways, or vacation travels May 8, 2008
Although best known as the Dairy State because of its historic importance for the production of milk and cheese, Wisconsin is also home to more than one hundred public gardens, memorable landscapes, nature preserves, and impressive plant nurseries. Now for the first time these diverse horticultural sites of interest have been organized into a superlatively illustrated guide book by Madison resident Mary Lou Santovec and her photographing husband Rick. Each of these remarkable Wisconsin horticultural sites comes with complete directions on getting to them, as well as descriptions of what each of them have to offer the visitor. Enhanced with directories of Wisconsin garden and plant clubs, master gardeners, specialty gardens, and so much more, this beautiful guidebook is a 'must' for Wisconsin gardeners, horticulturalist, and naturalists, as well as the non-specialist general reader who would like to enjoy the beauty and diversity of gardening in Wisconsin. This seminal itinerary of Wisconsin horticultural sites is organized geographically into Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, and Southeast. Each entry also includes an 'info block' description that includes the county, address, phone number, directions, admission fee (if any), access availability hours, and amenities such as the availability of street parking, food, sanitation facilities, etc. Ideal for planning excursions for day-trips, weekend getaways, or vacation travels, "Wisconsin Gardens & Landscapes" is an enthusiastically recommended addition to personal and community library Wisconsin Travel and Wisconsin Gardening/Horticultural reference collections.
