The Scentual Garden: Exploring the World of Botanical Fragrance
We are so excited to offer this exquisitely detailed, succulently illustrated personal favorite book.
A staple for both herbalists & botanists, mentally stimulating & aesthetically pleasing, this book is for the perfume lovers, photographers, botanical artists, gardeners & nature folk alike.
Winner of an American Horticultural Society Book Award and a Garden Communicators International Gold Medal, The Scentual Garden is a complete illustrated survey of fragrance in the garden by “the guru of natural gardening” ( New York Times ), Ken Druse.
In this major work filled with knowledge about the aromas found in our floral world, Ken Druse arranges both familiar and unusual garden plants, shrubs, and trees into 12 categories, giving gardeners a vastly expanded palate of scents to explore and enjoy, and he also provides examples of garden designs that offer harmonious scentual delights.
Ellen Hoverkamp contributes her artful botanical images of flowers and plants discussed in the text. These are accompanied by Druse’s award-winning garden photographs to create a book that is as beautiful to look at as it is informative and evocative to read.
“A brilliant and fascinating journey into perhaps the most overlooked and under-appreciated dimension of plants. Ken’s well-researched information, experience and perfect examples, now has me appreciating plants, gardens, and designs in a fresh and stimulating way.” — Joe Lamp’l, Emmy Award–winning creator and host of Growing a Greener World
