“The Book of the Wild Garden” is a wonderful little guide to creating and maintaining a 'wild' garden. A wild garden refers to a garden which has been designed to appear more natural and unkempt than others, often containing beautiful wild flowers, sprawling rockeries, hidden pools and ponds, and other exciting elements. Easy to follow and full of fantastic tips and simple directions, this volume is ideal for green-fingered enthusiasts with an interest in wild gardens. Contents include: “Bulbs”, “Tall and Medium-sized Plants”, “Dwarf-Growing Plants”, “Flowering Shrubs and Trees”, “Peat-Loving Shrubs”, “Climbers”, “Water Plants”, “Plants for the Waterside”, “Plants for Moist and Boggy Ground”, “Wall Plants”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
