  At first mistaken for parasitic plants because they grow wild on the branches of tropical trees, orchids were once considered nearly impossible to cultivate. But in 1818 William Cattley succeeded in flowering one of the first species of the genus that would bear his name, in his "stove" or heated greenhouse, in England. A.A. Chadwick has grown and studied the classic cattleyas for more than 60 years and in this lushly illustrated volume, he and his son Arthur E. Chadwick share their knowledge and expertise about growing the large-flowered cattleyas and their hybrids. Each species is described in detail, as are the growing requirements, from cultivation through diagnosing and treating problems.

IN STOCK - ....


  A regular expert on public television's The Victory Garden, Adrian Bloom has spent 35 years planting and maintaining a famed six-acre garden in Bressingham, England, that employs a startling 500 varieties of conifers, including dwarf and ground cover varieties. Here Bloom reveals the perhaps unexpected beauty that conifers can bring to the garden—particularly in creating structure and balance for year-round visual interest and color—and fully describes 200 varieties available to the North American gardener. "It would seem that in the realm of garden literature, relatively few books are devoted to conifer gardening; a shame, since few plants rival their variety and versatility. Whether used as companions for other garden plants, massed as privacy screens, or positioned alone for dramatic accent, conifers impart a rich and lustrous element, turning any garden into a veritable tapestry of color and texture.... Bloom concisely analyzes unique features, and offers care tips and critical data on growth dimensions, an important factor in determining proper design and landscape usage. Magnificently highlighted by more than 250 striking color photographs taken by Bloom's son, Richard, including vivid and fascinating close-ups, conifers are showcased in their full glory as richly textured, brilliantly colored, and subtly structured plants deserving of a spot in every garden."—Booklist

Title On the Wild Side - Experiments in the New Naturalism

Author Keith Wiley

ISBN 0-88192-636-1

Condition NEW

PRICE .. £

IN STOCK - ....


  "Natural" gardens are nothing new; the English landscape style has emulated scenes from nature since the early 1700s. Wiley's "new naturalism" takes the concept further, seeking "to capture only the spirit of wild plantings and never attempt to replicate exactly any landscape or combination of plants." Gardeners can achieve effects with form, color and placement by closely observing scenes as disparate as South African savannas, the Colorado Rockies, Swiss alpine meadows and New England roadsides. Wiley eschews overly intensive soil management in favor of "working with what you have got" to produce not a prize specimen but "a community of plants forming a harmonious picture." He encourages self-seeding and delights in serendipitous, if temporary, successes. Wiley chooses plants for their power to evoke the spirit of a natural scene, and he devotes the majority of the book to plants and plant associations grouped accordingly. (Most American readers will have to substitute hardier plants for many of those Wiley suggests; USDA hardiness zones are conspicuously absent.) As head gardener at The Garden House in Devon, England, Wiley practiced "Wild West, seat-of-your-pants, pioneering gardening" for 25 years, creating one of England's most distinctive gardens. His experience is reflected in ample practical advice, but he is not confined by it; he also offers many imaginative ideas for gardens he has yet to create. Over 200 color photographs provide additional inspiration. Wiley's aim is "freeing your own creative inner spirit from the straitjacket of horticultural tradition," and in that, he succeeds brilliantly.

  Compiled by globe-trotting botanist Martyn Rix and photographer Roger Phillips (also the host of The Quest for the Rose and The 3,000 Mile Garden on British television), Perennials includes complete descriptions and color photographs for over 2500 types of perennials. The book includes growing tips and propagation, origins of plants and their varieties, plant combinations and flowering times for every phase of the growing season, natural planting associations, and combinations for borders, island beds, and meadow gardens, as well as sources and gardens to visit around the world. "The decidedly British tone and references to the Royal Horticultural Society in no way alter the universal scope or content of the title, which features small type and large, clear photographic layouts. That this book is geared for the more sophisticated gardener is evidenced by the practice of listing all plants by their Latin scientific names (genus and habitat) with occasional use of common names.... Experienced horticulturalists will welcome this volume."—Booklist

  "This pretty, appealing book, with 52 full color photographs by Harry Haralambou (who teamed with [Theodore] James on such books as Iris, Tulip and Seaside Gardening), provides a thorough discussion of the myriad varieties of roses. While this volume is rich in information, it is a far cry from text-dense gardening manuals; the photos are soothing and beautiful, with close-ups of roses and peeks inside rambling, intricate rose gardens of the English countryside and the North Fork of Long Island. Landscape designer [Clyde Phillip] Wachsberger (Of Leaf and Flower) imparts an understanding not just of the flower and how it should be grown and cared for, but also of how it lends itself to the creation of an impressive landscape or a charming garden."—Publishers Weekly

Title The Self-Sustaining Garden: A Gardener's Guide to Matrix Planting

Author Peter Thompson

ISBN 0-88192-837-2

Condition NEW

PRICE .. £

IN STOCK - ....


  Matrix planting matches plants and places, and combines appropriate plants in communities to create a low-maintenance, naturalistic garden.

This book explores the theme that the plants themselves can do much of the hard work gardeners believe is an essential part of gardening. The Self-Sustaining Garden advocates using plants as partners in self-sustaining communities to create low maintenance gardens rather than being a slave to spades and hoes. In a series of compelling case studies, Peter Thompson shows how to transform a conventional garden into a self-sustaining garden. Updated from the original edition (published in 1997), The Self-Sustaining Garden brings together an explanation of the universal principles of matrix planting with specific applications and informative chapters on soil health and biological controls, and shows how to pull all the ingredients together into a strong, self-sustaining design.
