Gardens of the Garden State by Nancy Berner and Susan Lowry is a collection of essays about 29 public and private gardens all over the state. The variety of the gardens is impressive and speaks to the diversity of the topography found in the state which is the fifth smallest in the nation yet boasts rolling farmland, mountains, lakes, rivers, seashore, swamps, pine barrens, rocky ridges, and stony hills. Included in this book is a two page spread on Andrea Filippone's garden in Pottersville, NJ.
