The woods evoke a powerful response in people?we are moved by the moss-covered stones, the towering trees, and the pockets of quiet shade. A designed woodland garden can create the same effect.
Keith Wiley, former head gardener for one of the most beloved woodland gardens, The Garden House, has spent his entire career dedicated to woodland plants. In Designing and Planting a Woodland Garden he offers comprehensive information on hundreds of woodland plants and details how to use them in a well-designed garden. Information on planting a woodland garden includes design tips and instruction on how to create shade in a garden. Plant profiles for woodland trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs, ferns, and grasses include complete growing information, along with the botanical and common name and zone requirements.

Product Description:

Woodlands are magical places and even small gardens can capture the atmosphere with a carefully chosen tree and some shade-loving plants. Selecting the right plant for the right place is essential and expert plantsman Keith Wiley explains how to combine plants that will thrive together and even how to create shade if you don?t already have it.  In this evocative account, he mingles beguiling, less well-known plants with familiar, time-tested ones to create fabulous effects in all seasons. The owner of Wildside Nursery in Devon, England, Keith Wiley inspires gardeners everywhere with his dynamic, naturalistic style.
