Great GardensBook - 1994
Compiled by the editors of "Fine Gardening" magazine, this book contains a collection of articles which describe and illustrate 18 different gardens, with lessons for both the beginner and experienced gardener to put to use in their own gardens. Illustrated in colour throughout, the book includes an in-depth profile of each garden and the way in which professional gardeners develop their own properties. Tips and techniques are given on planning, site-preparation and selecting the right plants to bring out the best in each landscape. The gardens featured in the book can all be adapted to suit any garden, including a cottage garden, a collector's garden, a formal garden, a hillside refuge, a rocky mountain garden, a woodland garden, a suburban garden, an ornamental garden, a Japanese-inspired garden, and a garden with no lawn.
