The garden bookstore of your dreams
Welcome to the second floor of Bell’s Books in downtown Palo Alto. Curl up in the chair after you’ve pulled some volumes from “one of the west coast’s largest selection of works on ornamental horticulture.”
There are literally thousands of new, used, and rare books on specific plants, botanical art, gardening narratives, and garden design. Phone and email requests are happily accepted.
If you’re traveling in the Bay Area I hope you won’t resist that storefront, luring you into one of the most charming spots in Silicon Valley.
Bell’s has non-garden books too—but who cares about those?
Daily Mail—-Some plants are darn lucky to find a gardener who appreciates them.
