The Harrowsmith Perennial Garden; Flowers for Three Seasons, Lima, Patrick
9 Lima, Patrick The Harrowsmith Perennial Garden; Flowers for Three Seasons
Camden East, Ontario Camden House Publishing 1987 0-920656-74-9 / 9780920656747 Hard Cover Good Plus to Very Good No Jacket 4to - over 9" - 12" tall Derek Fell, John Scanlan, et al 
This book is a genuine Harrowsmith publication which came out just before the magazine was sold. I count myself lucky to have known it from the start, and to have had an article published in Issue 12 which was included in the first hardcover Harrowsmith Reader. Perennial Garden has the same feel of authenticity and accuracy engendered by the original magazine. Colour photos from a variety of artists are superb. I found faint, scattered highlighting on 11 of the 158 pp, which include an index.
