About the author (1996)

For the first edition of "Aroids", Deni undertook a solo round-the-world aroid hunting trip, venturing into the rainforests of Sumatra looking for the spectacular "Amorphophallus titanum". She has photographed botanic gardens in Europe, the United States, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, India, and Australia, and is also a regular researcher and photographer at both Kew and Edinburgh. Deni is married with 5 children, and is currently at work on developing a 6-acre garden devoted mainly to culinary, medicinal, and aromatic plants, which of course includes some aroids.

John Brookes has often been described as the world's most influential landscape designer, both because the gardens he has created for his clients and his teaching of the art spans five continents, and because his books have been bestsellers since his groundbreaking classic Room Outside was first published in 1969. Brookes' own training among the giants of 20th-century landscape design and his international career have given him a unique perspective on our changing attitude to the garden, and he has consistently shown us the best of the new landscaping trends. Natural Landscapes is a must-have resource for gardeners who want to improve their environment, and also for anyone who cares about good landscape design.
