Guides the gardener through the entire gardening process - from clearing ground and choosing plants to planting and long-term maintenance

Guides the gardener through the entire gardening process - from clearing ground and choosing plants to planting and long-term maintenance.

Against this backdrop, Hobhouse focuses on the plants themselves-the raw materials of the garden maker’s art. Opulently illustrated with 375 paintings, illuminated manuscripts, botanical drawings, and frescoes, as well as period and contemporary photographs, this is a classic work that will be consulted for years to come.

The approach can be applied to any garden, large or small, old or new, in country or town.

Comments:

Bele
I really do like this book, it's broken down into understandable chapters which make sense all the way around regarding the nitty gritty of how to garden, not just pictures but actual how-to information. I think some of the information is a little out dated, especially now that the emphasis for sustainable gardening is on native gardening. I see she recommends some (to my area) invasive plants. But since I know this I simply do not take her advice on this matter and garden as I know the best for my area. Overall Penelope knows her stuff and I do love what she has to say about gardening in general.

I have been trying to buid a perennial garden for several years. I bought this on a recommendation from Amazon and I already have many more ideas for this year and the next several.
