Overview

English native plants are enjoying something of a renaissance, and Shakespeare's flowers are just some of the treasures of the English flora recently rediscovered by gardeners. Indeed, these original inhabitants of the land are at the heart of a new way of creating gardens more in harmony with their surroundings and less dependent on artificial chemicals.

English Plants for your Garden shows how native plants can be incorporated into any garden, to create a haven that is both peaceful and pulsing with life; a garden with nectar in flower borders to encourage bees and butterflies, and with plants to entice birds which catch insects. It includes profiles of more than 200 gardenworthy native plants, written by Penny Hart, John Simmons and Don Berwick, and gives details of their cultivation and potential garden use. The plants are illustrated with the rarely seen, exquisite 16th-century watercolours of Jacques le Moyne de Morgues and with the specially commissioned photographs of Don Berwick, who travelled hundreds of miles to capture the plants as they burst into flower.

Great men and women of the past such as William Morris, William Robinson and Gertrude Jekyll championed the use of native plants in gardens; today, some equally influential gardeners have helped with this book, which is dedicated to Dame Miriam Rothschild. She has written the foreword and the preface is by John Brookes. The copyright for the text belongs to Flora-for-Fauna, the conservation charity founded by Jill Duchess of Hamilton, Penny Hart and John Simmons in 1994. Flora-for-Fauna's mission is to encourage people to value their local flora and to promote gardening for the benefit of wildlife and the environment. The backbone of the charity is the Postcode Plant Database http://fff.nhm.ac.uk/fff at the Natural History Museum, London.
