An exciting and refreshing call to arms, The Planthunter is a new generation of gardening book for a new generation of gardener that encourages readers to fall in love with the natural world by falling in love with plants.

“Chockablock with gorgeous images and thoughtful profiles of fellow plant devotees…readers will find it hard not to get caught up in Reid’s enthusiasm for all things botanical, and her enthralling stories, combined with Daniel Shipp’s vibrant nature photography, will appeal to both gardening junkies and neophytes.” —Publishers Weekly

“A collection of unusual gardens and their makers… well-chosen photographs.” —The Art Newspaper

The Planthunter is for those who seek not specimen plants but a place to question the culture of people and plants. It is…a new thing that combines a do-it-yourself design ethos with deep horticultural knowledge.” —Landscape Architecture Magazine

“We already have more than enough books that tell us how to make gardens for the complacent, expensive outdoor garden rooms for thoughtless leisure, gardens to establish social status. What is different about the garden makers in this book is their focused intention and their thoughtfulness… All [of Reid’s] company of gardeners think about their gardens as an intrinsic part of their lives. [The Planthunter is] a book with a message for our troubled times.” —Federal Twist

“A creative collaboration… intensely honest.” —The American Gardener

“So good. You owe it to yourself to get this book.” —The Danger Garden

“From street gardens in Los Angeles to grand country estates in Australia, the soulful photos and considered essays are sure to inspire and inform.” —California Home Design
