This is a classic work by a gardener who combines a passionate love of his subject with a critical intelligence and a good helping of wit.

Meadows: At Great Dixter and Beyond (Pimpernel Garden Classics)
picture
Features:-
'To see a meadow in bloom is a great delight - it's alive and teeming with life, mysterious, dynamic ...' So Christopher Lloyd began his much-admired instructive and celebratory account of meadows, first published in 2004. Few people knew more about meadow gardening than Lloyd, who spent much of his long life developing the flowering tapestries in his garden at Great Dixter, creating scenes of great beauty and a place of pilgrimage for lovers of wildflowers and wildlife. In Meadows he imparted that lifetime's learning, exploring the development and management of meadow areas, explaining how to establish a meadow in a garden setting, describing the hundreds of beautiful grasses, bulbs and perennials and annuals that thrive in different meadow conditions and detailing how to grow them. Lloyd's classic text remains at the heart of this new book, which also includes - as well as much stunning new photography - an extensive introduction by Fergus Garrett, Lloyd's head gardener.

Making a Garden: Successful gardening by nature's rules
picture
Features:-
'...any keen gardener would love this excellent book.' Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times 'Carol Klein is known for her no-nonsense approach and inspires us to garden.' Gardens Illustrated In this invaluable book acclaimed plantswoman and bestselling author Carol Klein explains how to get the most from your garden by taking inspiration from what works in the wild - be it in a meadow, woodland, hedgerow, seaside or exposed setting. Carol encourages you to identify the conditions in your outdoor space - for example, the shady corner of an urban garden mimics the conditions of woodland or a windswept roof terrace will replicate an exposed hillside - and to pick the plants that flourish in these conditions. In each of the six chapters there are case study gardens that Carol admires for the way their owners have worked with the natural habitat to glorious effect and each chapter ends with a directory of about 30 of Carol's favourite plants for that habitat. As ever, Carol's text is wise, informative and beautifully written while photography by award-winning Jonathan Buckley ensures that the book is also a visual treat.

British Gardens in Time: The Greatest Gardens and the People Who Shaped Them
picture
Features:-
As Seen on the BBC. British Gardens in Time takes four iconic gardens, each a product of its age, and provides a fascinating window into the creators and events that shaped them. The stories of their creation include obsession, escape, social ambition, political intrigue, heartbreak, bankruptcy and disaster. In unravelling these remarkable stories we reach back over the centuries to see these great gardens through fresh eyes. From the magnificent landscape garden at Stowe created by Bridgeman, Kent and Lancelot 'Capability' Brown; the Victorian masterpiece of Biddulph Grange; the romantic Arts & Crafts retreat at Nymans; and Christopher Lloyd's plantsman's paradise at Great Dixter, you will hear of adventure, innovation and visionary individuals who changed the way we create our gardens and the plants we grow. Author Katie Campbell weaves the stories of these four exemplary gardens into a history of British gardening from the earliest cultivated spaces to the present day, exploring trends, influences and pioneers. Fascinating historic detail and atmospheric storytelling make this a compelling read.British Gardens in Time includes a foreword by CHRIS BEARDSHAW, specially commissioned photography by NATHAN HARRISON, and extensive archive illustrations. Author KATIE CAMPBELL lectures widely, leads garden tours and writes on the social history of gardening. Her other books published by Frances Lincoln are Icons of Twentieth-Century Landscape Design and Paradise of Exiles.
