RHS Nature's Gardener is a new edition for 2011 and considers how we should garden today and what the garden means in a changing climate with the most up-to-date information available. Thematic chapters identify the benefits and potential of your site, look at the importance of managing your soil, and show why sustainability is important in the garden. You learn why gardening with wildlife in mind is beneficial for both your garden and biodiversity, looking at plant choice and the horticulture for the world of plants at your disposal (including sections on grass, gardening with little or no water, gardening in shady conditions, gardening in boggy areas or near water), the structural design of your garden and planting design. A useful year-round new gardening chart, comprehensive glossary and index add depth to this new volume.
