Synopsis:

All gardeners love plants, but if you love them too much, chances are you will end up with a plant collection, not a garden. Roger Turner, confessed plantaholic and landscape designer, offers helpful advice on how to indulge a passion for collecting plants without forfeiting the joys of a coherent, well-designed garden. Happily, the book does not prescribe curbing the excesses of plant addiction but simply recommends ways for plant collectors to focus it to the advantage of all who share or visit their gardens. Over 200 eye-catching and informative photographs highlight successful planting methods and illustrate the rewards to be gained from finding the perfect setting for a treasured plant.

Book Description Timber Press, United States, 2005. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. All gardeners love plants but if you love them too much the chances are you will end up with a plant collection rather than a garden. Help is at hand from confirmed plantaholic and architect Roger Turner, who describes how to indulge a passion for collecting plants without forfeiting the joys of a coherent, well-designed garden. Happily, the book prescribes little need to curb the excesses of plant addiction but simply recommends ways of focusing it to the advantage of all who share or visit your garden. Good collections need to be displayed well so that you can see them properly. The first part of the book looks at the structure of the garden as a whole, the balance of empty space to planted space , the use of framing devices, and the value of paths in providing routes around the garden. At the heart of the book is a large section on plants that proposes ideas and solutions for making gardens with different types of plant collections. Here you will find schemes for displaying collections of trees from small groups to full-scale arboreta; recommendations for single-genus collections that look well planted together in one bed; and, the ideal space-holder plants that cover bare earth before prize bulbs emerge. Over 200 eye-catching and informative photographs highlight successful planting methods and illustrate the rewards to be gained from finding the perfect setting for a treasured plant. Plant enthusiasts, collectors and gardeners everywhere will unite in their enthusiasm for this practical book that provides the key to making beautiful gardens while keeping the spotlight on the plants.
