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. In these pages, C.L. Fornari offers expert advice with the warm and casual tone of a broadly knowledgeable and informed friend.

The author of many acclaimed gardening books, C.L. has lived and gardened on the Cape for twenty-five years. 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. Complete with an index to help you navigate the parade of flowers, fungicides, and footstools, Sand & Soil is the perfect how-to survival guide to alleviate your horticultural anxieties and bring forth beautiful blooms from the sandy soil of this legendary landscape.

C.L. Fornari is a creative gardening expert and self-defined “plant geek” who transitioned from artist to garden communicator in 1995. She is the author of eight books as well as the host of GardenLine, heard on WXTK, and co-host of Plantrama, a podcast produced by Zachos and Fornari.
