A Book for Every Garden Lover

As the epicenter of horticulture in the United States, the  Philadelphia region is blessed with more public gardens in  a more concentrated area than almost anyplace else in the world.

This new guidebook, produced by an award-winning writer & photographer team, is a must-have resource, providing up-to-date information on more than 70 gardens. Even long-time residents
will discover new gardens, or get new insights into old favorites.

Illustrated with 200 full-color photographs, the 192-page volume includes maps, contact information, and other useful features including size, visit time, and assessments of accessibility.

One of the main purposes of this website is to provide updates to the information in the book, which we will post as we learn about them on the UPDATES page.
You, our readers, can help our effort to keep the book current.
If you visit a garden and see something different from (or not included in) the book please contact us. We are also interested in any other public gardens in the region, of any size,
that may be newly opened since the book’s publication.
