About this book

In this splendid book, Beardshaw shows how to develop gardens that are in tune with nature, where plants will flourish with minimum effort. The book is based on the TV series, The Flying Gardener, in which he looks at plants in different habitats and discovers how nature achieves what the gardener strives for. He reveals how to put this knowledge into practice when selecting and cultivating plants for a domestic setting. He identifies five types of garden - rock, water, wood, wetland and meadow gardens - and explores each in detail, providing practical information on plant selection, maintenance and pruning.
