Overview

Christopher Lloyd was one of the world's most outspoken and adventurous gardeners. In this, his last book, he offers his unique perspective on creating 'hot and steamy' planting schemes wherever you garden. It features his most extravagant plantings in the famous borders and pot displays that delight and excite, and sometimes shock, visitors to his garden, Great Dixter.

Covering structure as well as content, hardy as well as tender, foliage as well as flowers, Exotic Planting for Adventurous Gardeners is a worthy successor to Succession Planting and an exuberant swansong for one of the most respected and beloved gardeners ever.
