Overview

All keen gardeners aspire to the great gardens of today and yesterday and look to the creators of such gardens for guidance. But how do we go about learning from these people? What is it that makes their gardens really great?

Classic Planting takes the reader into the gardens of expert gardeners to see how they achieve the stunning effects that make their gardens famous. Featuring the gardens of Christopher Lloyd, Beth Chatto, Penelope Hobhouse, Rosemary Verey and many more, the book presents a beautifully illustrated guide to the planting schemes of those gardens. We see why the gardeners have used the plants they have and read about the philosophies behind the plant associations they have created. Among the truly inspirational ideas there is also plenty of practical advice and discussion.

Arranged thematically, the book covers seasonal planting, formal and informal style, water plants and containers. In this refreshing way, Classic Planting offers a highly individual approach to planting design and an invaluable guide to the art of planting.
