About this deal

In the second part of the book Maintaining the Garden all the tools equipment accessories and materials needed for garden projects are covered. Comprehensive coverage of gardens and gardening The largest section of the book Creating the Garden opens with a detailed chapter on garden planning and design which invites you to explore fresh ways of designing and making the most of your site.

The print quality and imagery is excellent, but in my copy there are a few marks where it seems the ink has transferred onto some of the pages which is a little disappointing and spoils an otherwise lovely print - but your copy may vary. The bustle of 20th-century life leads more individuals to rediscover the age-old tranquillity of gardens. Above this fundamental level, the gardener assesses and accommodates the unique complex of temperature, wind, rainfall, sunlight, and shade found within his own garden boundaries. The gardening experience may involve visiting some of the world’s great gardens at different seasons to see the relation of individual groups of plants, trees, and shrubs to the whole design; to study the positioning of plants in terms of their colour, texture, and weight of leaf or blossom; and to appreciate the use of special features such as ponds or watercourses, pavilions, or rockeries.

It explains the meaning of gardening and botanical terms, garden planning, construcion and planting, the various methods of plant propagation, lawn making and management, and crop harvesting. This is followed by individual chapters based on the main plant groups and areas of the garden - for example ornamental trees perennials the rock garden the fruit garden and the indoor garden. It is not surprising that the garden, accorded respect as a part of nature and a place of contemplation, holds a special place in the spiritual life of many.
