This book aims to share with readers the basic tools, techniques and principles of how to create and maintain a beautiful garden through Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Straightforward, no-nonsense language and advice, along with simple photography showing the practicalities of gardening will advise budding gardeners on how to build their garden from a naked skeleton through to a beautifully garbed wonderland. The book will give people a greater understanding of the part that gardening and nature plays in their lives, in their health and in their general wellbeing. The book is separated into horticultural sections - architectural plants, evergreens, seasonal plants, contrast & textural plants, herbs, fruit & vegetables, and container gardening - so whether the reader is starting their garden from scratch, or merely looking for advice on annuals or the edible garden, they will find what they are looking for easily. Each section is covered from the point of view of choosing the right plant for the right space, the planting itself, and maintaining the plants through the seasons. Each section will also contain boxed-out sections, or sidebars that highlight interesting and useful information for the gardener, e.g. soil science, composting etc. Everything will be laid out in layman's terms and use easy to follow instruction. Each section will be prose - with any step by step detailing separated out into sidebars, boxes or offset paragraphs to give readers an easy to use reference. At the heart of this book lies a DIY ethic that applies not only to the garden, but also to living. We are intrinsically linked to plants and the natural world and the survival of plants and the natural world is intrinsically linked to us. As a gardener I feel it is very important that I leave the planet in a better condition than when I found it. I think it is important for all humans to think like this. With this in mind I feel that gardens should be working hand in hand and symbiotically with nature as opposed to fighting against it. A ten-year battle with cancer gave me an entirely new view on life and living and the vital link between me and the nature around me. It was nature that helped me to heal; from the tree I could see through my hospital room window that taught me to appreciate each passing season, to the herbs that naturally eased my discomfort.

Widely acknowledged as the last great landscape designer of the eighteenth century, Humphry Repton created work that survives as a bridge between the picturesque theory of Capability Brown and the pastoral philosophy of Frederick Law Olmsted. By turns inspired by and in opposition to the grandeur of Brown s estates, Repton s contribution to the British landscape encompassed a tremendous range, from subtle adjustments that emphasised the natural features of the countryside to deliberate interventions that challenged the notion of the picturesque. This remarkable book explores 15 of Repton s most celebrated landscapes from the early maturity of his gardens at Courteenhall and Mulgrave Castle to more adventurous landscapes at Stanage, Brightling, and Endsleigh that would point the way toward how we envision parkland today. With photography by Joe Cornish commissioned specially for the book, and including reproductions of key illustrations and plans for garden design from the famous red books that shed light on Repton s vision and process, this book illuminates some of Britain s most beautiful gardens and parks and the masterful mind behind their creation.

Hortulus Farm, one of the most celebrated private gardens in America, is known as for its opulence and evocative mix of classical design and modern sensibilities. It has been featured in publications like House & Garden, House Beautiful, and Country Living and the New York Times called it "formal, intimate, and grand." In Chasing Eden, Jack Staub and Renny Reynolds use their Pennsylvania-based garden to teach home gardeners the principles of garden design. And more importantly, how and when to break those rules to create a unique, attention-worthy landscape. Readers will learn about vistas and focal points; hardscape; garden furnishing and decoration; and plant palette. They'll also learn more conceptual approaches, like the use of reveal and surprise, and how to beautifully incorporate a kitchen garden into a designed landscape. Equal parts inspirational and practical, this lavishly illustrated book, featuring photography by Rob Cardillo, will help gardeners create their own personal Edens.

A Guide to what not to do in your garden. Gardening is widely regarded as one of life's great joys. However, you might not feel that way if you pay too much attention to the experts: every garden magazine and newspaper relentlessly publishes hectoring instructions telling you what you must do in your garden this week or this month, to the point where your garden can become a source of constant stress or wasted energy. Rather than add to the pile of suggested drudgery, this book is instead dedicated to relieving you of pointless and unnecessary garden work, and suggests easy and pleasant ways to look after your little patch of paradise.

Weeds are botanical thugs, but they have always been essential to our lives. They were the first crops and medicines and they inspired Velcro. They adorn weddings and foliate the most derelict urban sites. With the verve and historical breadth of Michael Pollan, acclaimed nature writer Richard Mabey delivers a provocative defense of the plants we love to hate.
