“Diana Anthony doesn’t live in the islands, but in Melbourne, Australia. Fortunately, not only do many plants flourish here that do well there, the garden principles she teaches in this well-organized, beautifully photographed book transfer well, too. . . . You can read this book with interest and enjoyment, but use it to make your mini-Versailles dreams come true.” —Honolulu Weekly (30 May-5 June 2012)
