From choosing the right rocks and plants to weeding and night gardening, this book shows how to start or maintain a rock garden, whether one has access to acres of land in the country or a window shelf in the city. At the same time it describes the sacred meaning of stones and rocks in many of the world's cultures and spiritual traditions, including Stonehenge and Ayers Rock, the Western Wall in Jerusalem and the Ka'ba in Mecca, Japan's Zen gardens, Europe's cathedrals, America's temples and Egypt's pyramids. Both practical and inspirational, it will appeal to everyone who loves gardens, rocks and the transforming power of nature.
