  Roundtable assembled a team of talented gardening experts, editors, photo researchers, designers, illustrators, and horticultural consultants to complete this stunning addition to Sunset's highly regarded line of regional gardening titles in under 9 months—a remarkably tight schedule for such a complex project. We researched and collected the more than 800 photographs that appear in the book, calling on the resources of over 30 garden photographers. We edited more than 2,000 entries for an A to Z plant encyclopedia, all geared to the requirements of northeastern gardening. New full-color zone maps were commissioned to illustrate Sunset's esteemed climate zone system as applied to the Northeast. And our gardening experts reviewed and edited the entire manuscript to ensure that the NORTHEASTERN GARDEN BOOK is not only comprehensive, but also contains the newest plants and cutting-edge techniques and tips. The book's editorial challenges aside, Roundtable delivered final electronic files directly to Sunset's printer for computer-to-plate manufacturing, successfully concluding a production challenge that included the management and/or creation of more than 1,700 pieces of print-ready high-resolution electronic art.
