Pressestimmen

Hinkley ... addresses his plant-collection procedures and standards to assure readers he's taken pains to avoid introducing pests, diseases or invasive species. -- Mary Beth Breckenridge Akron Beacon Journal 20090613 Hinkley is in the old breed of plant-hunter, one who hoofs about the globe with little more than a trowel and a trusty leather carry-all to hold his botanic treasures. -- Mary-Liz Shaw Milwaukee Journal Sentinel 20090621 [Hinkley] traps us with his eloquent, spot-on descriptions as cleverly as a Dutchman's pipe bloom lures, traps, then releases its pollinators. -- Kathy Huber Houston Chronicle 20090711 What sets Dan apart from the crowd is his understanding of how to grow plants well. His careful observations of plants in the wild give this book an edge and provide us with a better understanding of how to cultivate many of these wonderful shrubs and vines. -- Mat Reese Gardens Illustrated 20090801 Scores of exciting plants still await wider use by gardeners, and The Explorer's Garden is a masterful guide to this cornucopia. Michigan Gardener 20090901 A diverting read on chilly nights to come, when we can share, from a safe distance, Hinkley's "near-lunatic" passion for exotic plants and places. -- Maureen McCarthy Minneapolis Star Tribune 20091027 The armchair traveler will relish the quotes from [Hinkley's] travel journal which introduce each chapter; the horticulturalist will be caught up in the text, which describes the origins and hybrids of an array of perennials. SciTech Book News 20091201

Synopsis

If you thought the age of the great plant explorers was over, guess again. Dan Hinkley, founder of the legendary Heronswood Nursery, has scoured the globe for botanical treasures, a bounty that has enriched gardens throughout the world. He presents the most outstanding shrubs and vines from his plant-collecting trips to Chile, Costa Rica, South Africa, Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Nepal, Bhutan, India, New Zealand, Europe, and North America. Explorers will encounter little-known exotics such as the sapphire-berried dichroas and vermilion-flowered Desfontainea spinosa (Chilean holly). "The Explorer's Garden: Shrubs and Vines from the Four Corners of the World" also includes more familiar, but just as garden-worthy, plants such as witch hazels, hydrangeas, and sassafras. In every case, Hinkley zeroes in on why the plant deserves your garden space and what you can expect as the plant matures. Excerpts from Hinkley's travel journals evoke the plant's native setting with poetic precision, painting seductive portraits of the monkey-puzzle forests of South America or the rhododendron-clad slopes of the Himalayas.

As this brimming collection makes clear, there are still scores of exciting plants that await wider use by the gardening public. Readers who yearn for an expert guide to this cornucopia of riches will find no better companion than Dan Hinkley.

HASH(0x93509cb4) von 5 Sternen A book to treasure. 4. Juli 2009
Von R. Haworth - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is Dan's second book on the Explorer's Garden Series. A great read, giving his perfect experiences on the way plants grow in their native lands and how he discovered them growing, often up banks or cliffs.
His masterful prose is a delight to read, many fine details emerge of his worldly travels. Extremely well documented are his chapters in this book; whereby he takes a genus and gives you wonderful information on it. Take for example his thoughts on the shrub- viburnum; a great lot of info is given in this chapter and the reader comes away, actually blown away with details of this perfect shrub.
The photos throughout are a delight, clear and beautifully presented.
"There are few gardeners where validation of a plant's worthiness I would take so seriously", I quote Dan's words here, from his forward to Marina Christopher's recent book; definitely applies here to Dan's treasured book.
Purchase and enjoy it, hanging on every word in this detailed masterpiece.

Very impressive and suggestive book to hobby gardener and professional horticulturist.
Every reader become aware of how so plentiful attractive plants are living on this earth.
To draw them into the garden from secret forest, desert, sea shore etc for our enjoyment is well done by this book.

I have read many, many gardening/garden books. I read them for informational purposes, or to learn a specific talent that I need for my personal garden. As I knew of Heronswood Nursery, I decide to purchase this book, having read through one of the catalogs several years ago.

I rush to this book as soon as I get home. Then I sit down in my most comfortable chair, and I am instantly transported to parts of the world I can only imagine. I know many of these plants, although I don't grow them in my yard. Now I feel as if I know each plant intimately. The scope of information available in the book is such that I believe I might actually be able to grow some of these great plants, if I am patient, pay attention to the siting of the plant, and the specific needs of the plants.

I love the manner in which the book was written. It is as if you are having a conversation with an old friend, who just wants to tell you about his most recent experience with the plants he encountered on his travels. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in shrubs and vines, and something a little out of the ordinary.

This is a great addition to plant exploration literature. Dan Hinkley takes us to many of the worlds cold climate botanical hot spots. Each chapter focuses on a particular genus or plant group, beginning with a relevant extract from a diary or letter written on a plant hunting expedition. The rest of the chapter covers the authors first hand experiences with the plants both in the wild and in the garden. There is explicit and useful advice about hardiness, cultivation an propagation as well. The selection of photos in excellent, but what really elevates this book is the writing style. The tone is relaxed and full of fun with out reducing the informational quality. I found myself laughing out loud at the author's self deprecating humour, while jealously wishing I lived in a colder wetter climate.
HASH(0x93509df8) von 5 Sternen I love this book! 12. November 2015

Dan Hinkley's fascination with the plant kingdom is infectious. The more I read through the pages of this book, the more I want to become a plant explorer - seeking out unknown plant species and bringing them into cultivation. As Dan travels to remote locations around the globe, often high up on steep mountain slopes, he manages to discover spectacular specimens of tropical-looking schefflera, holboellia vines, jasmine, tetrapanax, and star anise, to name a few. It is exciting to see what can potentially be grown in temperate zones, such as where I live in Seattle. If you a lover of unusual plants, this book will ignite your imagination.
