Brandywine Cottage is David Culp's beloved two-acre Pennsylvania
garden where he mastered the design technique of layering --
interplanting many different species in the same area so that as
one plant passes its peak, another takes over. The result is a
nonstop parade of color that begins with a tapestry of heirloom
daffodils and hellebores in spring and ends with a jewel-like blend
of Asian wildflowers at the onset of winter.
"The Layered Garden" shows you how to recreate Culp's majestic
display. It starts with a basic lesson in layering -- how to choose
the correct plants by understanding how they grow and change
throughout the seasons, how to design a layered garden, and how to
maintain it. To illustrate how layering works, Culp takes you on a
personal tour through each part of his celebrated garden: the
woodland garden, the perennial border, the kitchen garden, the
shrubbery, and the walled garden. The book culminates with a
chapter dedicated to signature plants for all four seasons.
As practical as it is inspiring, "The Layered Garden" will
provide you with expert information gleaned from decades of hard
work and close observation. If you thought that a four-season
garden was beyond your reach, this book will show you how to
achieve that elusive, tantalizing goal.
