"Rosa is the doyenne of coastal gardening and I am delighted that she is now offering her accumulated knowledge and her long experience to other coastal gardeners."

James B. Thomason, gardener, landscape artist and painter.


"Marginal maritime climates used to be considered areas of the world where horticultural endeavours had never succeeded, and never would achieve success, but Rosa debunks these ideas. The book is filled with detailed, no-nonsense, easy-to-read and eminently practical advice, given with a wry sense of humour and uplifting optimism."

Sue Pomeroy, creator of No.2 Durnamuck Garden, Ross-shire and previously curator of the South African collection at Inverewe Gardens.
