A thorough and wide-ranging guide to the vast array of public gardens, arboretums, woods, and parks in the Garden State. In this practical, informative, illustrated guide, Arline Zatz describes dozens of inviting places to spend an hour, an afternoon, or an entire day. Each garden has been chosen for its uniqueness and beauty, such as Warinanco Park Gardens, with its dazzling show of tulips in spring, and Marquand Park, an arboretum with two hundred different species of trees. There are butterfly gardens, colonial herb gardens at historic sites, memorial gardens, pocket-sized romantic gardens, and gardens for meditation--plus places to picnic, listen to the birds, and awaken the senses. Here you'll find information on the history and plantings of each garden listed, as well as details on how to get there, when to visit for peak bloom and seasonal events, and much more. This guide will be welcomed by garden enthusiasts as well as by anyone seeking excursions in the Garden State. Contains descriptions of over 80 public gardens in the Garden State. A gardener's appendix at the back of the book lists nurseries and garden suppliers throughout the state.
