Designing and Planting the Woodland Garden: Plants and Combinations that Thrive in the Shade
The wonder of woodland gardening is that it looks like plants grow themselves there. After reading this book and following its guidelines, gardeners can make that happen.
From the creator of "one of the most exciting and innovative gardens in Britain today."
With their moss-covered stones, towering trees, and pockets of quiet shade, woodlands have a romantic power unlike anything else. Whether your garden is currently open and sunny, or on the small side, you can capture that sylvan atmosphere with carefully chosen trees and shade-loving plants. In Designing and Planting the Woodland Garden, Keith Wiley explains how to combine plants in natural, self-supporting colonies. His hand-picked selection of unexpected collectables—shrubs, perennials, bulbs, ferns, and grasses—mingle with garden favorites to create fabulous effects in all seasons.
