Several books have been written by the great-grandson of Elsie Reford and current director of the Gardens, Alexander Reford. The Jardins de Métis guide (Les Éditions de L'Homme, 2005) presents both the history and the horticultural riches of this domain. The book Jardins de Métis: The Paradise of Elsie Reford (Les Éditions de l'Homme, 2004) draws a portrait of the development of the Jardins de Métis. This book is illustrated with historical images as well as photographs of Louise Tanguay. Les belles de Métis: The Floral Heritage of Elsie Reford (Les Éditions de l'Homme, 2006), presents the celebrities of the collection of gardens such as the famous blue poppy, gentians, ferns, Peonies, peonies, lilies, roses, primroses, azaleas and sanguinaires. The book brings a complete portrait with Archives of photographs and documents. The publications are available online, at the horticultural shop as well as in most bookshops.
