Calling all gardeners (and all those who love a gardener!): we are hosting a book signing with "The Garden Lady," C.L. Fornari on Fri., July 5th from 10am-12pm. Perhaps you listen to her show GardenLine on the radio Saturday morning from 8am-10am on WXTK? Perhaps you are familiar with some of her other books? C.L. Fornari is a garden expert and award-winning author of seven books.
Her latest book, Sand and Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod and the Islands, answers a question we get asked quite often: do you have any gardening books that address the unique challenges of gardening on Cape Cod. "With a climate in equal measure challenging and rewarding, the Cape and Islands of Massachusetts provide a bold canvas for any would-be tamers of this unique landscape. C.L. Fornari offers expert advice with the warm and casual tone of a broadly knowledgable and informed friend.
The author of many acclaimed gardening books, quite a number of them focusing on the Cape's specific landscape and growing conditions, C.L. has lived and gardened on the Cape for twenty-five years herself. Drawing on her own experience, she deftly disentangles the many idiosyncrasies and potential pitfalls of growing a healthy and beautiful garden, both there and on the surrounding islands of Martha s Vineyard and Nantucket.
Bring your questions and get a signed copy of Sand and Soil: Creating Beautiful Gardens on Cape Cod and the Islands on July 5th! (Note: we will also have copies of a few of C.L. Fornari's other books, such as The Cocktail Hour Garden and Coffee for Roses available for purchase)
