Overview

Best Garden Design: Practical Inspiration from the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show by Chris Young

A showcase of the best ideas, trends, styles and techniques from the stars of the world-famous Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show.

Best Garden Design is an inspirational sourcebook that identifies the most attractive, practical and portable ideas from hundreds of gardeners and designers and analyzes how those ideas can work in any garden.

Interviews with gold medal-winning designers outline their individual design styles. Each design is then examined on a smaller scale to focus on the details and finishing touches that complete a design and help transform everyday gardens into showstoppers.

The author gives gardeners the very best medal-worthy gardening advice from the Royal Horticultural Society, the United Kingdom's leading gardening charity, dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting good gardening.
Best Garden Design addresses virtually every aspect of creating a garden worthy of the Chelsea Flower Show, including:

  • Lighting
  • Topiary
  • Seating
  • Decking
  • Water features
  • Kitchen gardens
  • Artful recycling
  • Growing old roses
  • Better baskets
  • How to position garden art
  • Reshaping a patio
  • Perfect perennials
  • Herbs
  • Drought

Not even the most dedicated visitor to the Chelsea Flower Show could amass this many notes of such value.
