Overview


Following on from their hugely successful first book, Outdoors, Diarmuid Gavin and Terence Conran collaborate once again to create PLANTING, a stunning and imaginative resource of planting schemes that work for almost any garden space.

Using case studies to look at real examples of inspiring planting schemes around the world in detail, PLANTING explores nature's vast palette of plants, where they come from, what grows naturally in which conditions, but most importantly, how they are used in gardens all around the world in contemporary times.

From how to look at a garden through a designer's eyes, to planning for color, texture and mood, as well as how to attract wildlife, PLANTING covers everything a gardener needs to know in the twenty-first century, whether they are planning an exotic paradise or an edible kitchen garden.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Award-winning UK landscape designers Diarmuid and Conran (coauthors, Outdoors: The Garden Design Book for the Twenty-First Century) team up again, now with the basics needed to plan a successful garden. Those anxious to start digging in the dirt right away will quickly discover these authors want gardeners first to spend some serious time thinking about what is going to work best for them in their individual horticultural circumstances. While the focus is more on the philosophical side of landscape design, a few case studies of individual gardens are included to illustrate the main points. From using color wisely to choosing the right plant for the right place, the information Diarmuid and Conran include is certainly not new or revolutionary, but it embodies exactly the kind of sound design principles that new gardeners (or even longtime gardeners looking for a refresher) need if they want their gardens to flourish in the long run. VERDICT This landscape design philosophy—with a British accent—is for both armchair gardeners and real planters wishing to understand the nuts and bolts involved in creating a good garden.—John Charles, Scottsdale P.L., AZ

Meet the Author

Terence Conran is widely recognized as one of the world's great designers and restauranteurs. In 1964 he founded the chain of Habitat stores in a bid to bring good, affordable modern design to the general public, and later he also established Conran & Partners, an architecture and design practice renowned for its intelligent modern design solutions. He has designed medal-winning gardens and has written several gardening books. .



Diarmuid Gavin has spent his colorful 20 year career successfully challenging the traditional conventions of garden design and gardening. His innovative designs, for which he draws inspiration from diverse sources such as Star Trek, fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, and architects Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry, invariably provoke passionate debate and have won him several medals at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
