Overview


SHADE

Every garden has some shade—some gardens are mostly shaded. Unfortunately, most gardeners see shade as a problem. Questions about what to plant in shady parts of the garden are among the most frequent posed in gardeners' magazines, phone-ins, and online discussions. In Shade, award-winning gardening expert Keith Wiley turns all the familiar preconceptions on their heads by presenting garden shade in a positive light, showing how you can create tapestries of color using wild woodland flowers from around the world, as well as modern varieties derived from them.

Keith Wiley first discusses shade—from dappled and partial to full and dense—in different situations and in every size and type of garden. He then considers the characteristics of shade-loving plants, showing how to use them with companions to create striking designs. He also looks att the practicalities of preparing, planting, and maintaining a shade garden.

Complete with a directory of shade-loving plants, Shade shows you how to turn shady areas into the highlights of your garden.

Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post
"[Includes] suggestions for plants you would never have thought to try."
—Joel M. Lerner, Washington Post, August 12, 2005
The Des Moines News
"This book is for those who love trees and the opportunities to bask in comforting shade."
—Steven Lamphear, Des Moines News, June 19, 2006
Library Journal
Because many gardeners have more shade than they can shake a shovel at, there is no shortage of books on shade gardening. This one, however, is a bit different. Instead of providing sample garden plans and lengthy lists of plants and their culture requirements, Wiley, a professional gardener, consultant, and nurseryman, engages the reader in conversation. As one reads, it is easy to imagine strolling through gardens with the author, listening to him comment on the various plants and groupings and share his horticultural wisdom. He addresses shade in various types of settings (e.g., woodland gardens) and discusses techniques for planting in shade, ending his shade coverage with a select list of shade plants that includes many common and a few not-so-common choices. If the photos (not seen) are half as magnificent as the galleys suggest, they will inspire gardeners everywhere to treasure their shady spots. Highly recommended for collections in areas where shady gardens are common. Beginners should supplement with a book that includes basic techniques and culture requirements for shade plants.-Janet A. Crum, Oregon Health & Science Univ. Lib., Portland Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

After obtaining an honors degree in horticulture from London University, Keith Wiley spent twenty-five years as head gardener at The Garden House in Devon. There he evolved a gardening style based on modifying natural landscapes from around the globe. The garden he created there was described by national commentators as “one of the most exciting and innovative gardens in Britain today” and the best example of “leading-edge horticulture” in the UK. Keith is a regular contributor to horticultural and lifestyle magazines, and has appeared on many gardening television programs in the UK. Over the last ten years, Keith and his wife have created a new garden from a bare field at Wildside, where they run their own nursery. Keith is the author of two other gardening books and has lectured widely all over the world.
