Editorial Reviews

Horticulture
"Piet Oudolf and Noël Kingsbury have accomplished quite a feat with Planting Design — they have written a gardening book that tackles theoretical questions and the practicalities of gardening with equal aplomb."
—Erin Kappeler, Horticulture, September 2006
American Gardener
"Excellent as an advanced course in Oudolf's "New Wave" planting movement that advocates choosing plants that are in harmony with the surrounding landscape, are well adapted to the native soil and growng conditions, and that will develop beautifully over time."

American Gardener, May/June 2006

Seattle Times
"I spent the first few minutes with this book wondering how they ever determined which of these high-powered plantsmen would have his name first on the cover."
—Valerie Easton, Seattle Times, September 16, 2005
