Aimed at amateurs who want to grow unusual plants which are normally seen only in botanical gardens, this book shows how to identify the different areas or micro-climates in a garden and then cultivate plants suitable for those places. It deals with tender plants, unusual sun-loving plants, desert plants, tender moisture-lovers, delicate shade-plants, and woodland plants. Straightforward practical advice includes detailed profiles of more than 40 plants, covering native habitat, cultivation, propagation, and pests and diseases. The book also contains features on spectacular plants suitable for containers, unusual bulbs, and plants for a bog garden, and all of those listed are available from good nurseries or by mail order.
