Ken Druse is a gardener’s hero, consistently delivering densely informative, beautifully designed books that belong in a museum. In his newest book, Scentual Garden—a glorious companion piece to his previous book, The New Shade Garden: Creating a Lush Oasis in the Age of Climate Change (Harry N. Abrams, 2015), which we consider an essential for any upstate home library—Druse organizes plants by their amazing scents and offers guidance on how to arrange them in the home garden for the perfect blend. Ellen Hoverkamp’s photography focuses closely on the necessary details and is simply stunning—you can practically smell the honey plants with every page turn.
