About this book

Just as Alice's looking glass revealed a world where nothing was as expected, Peter Thompson's "looking-glass garden" offers readers a glimpse of a world of new plants and possibilities by crossing the equator. The floras of countries as diverse as South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and Chile offer adventurous gardeners palettes, forms, textures, and effects that have no parallel in the garden offerings of the north. As well as offering useful suggestions on interesting plants that can be incorporated in a variety of gardens in our latitudes, Thompson's book is also a travelogue of the wild landscapes of faraway lands and a tour of some of the great gardens to be found below the equator.
