Overview

This book advocates a new way of using perennials that works with – rather than against - nature. Noël Kingsbury explores planting schemes designed to suit the existing condition of your garden. If your soil is poor and fast draining, choose tough hardy cultivars that will thrive in these conditions. Try an informal planting style that echoes nature: a structure that's loose rather than tight, where perennials are blended together rather than grouped in a rigid manner. These environmentally friendly plantings inspired by nature can create exotic, beautiful gardens that need less upkeep and less watering, less feeding and fewer chemicals than more artificial schemes. Noel Kingsbury shows how it's done.
