A legendary gardener takes us on an intimate tour of her verdant English woodland garden, revealing a horticultural landscape of planting in dry shade. Offering a wealth of practical inspiration and a palette of more than 200 plants adapted by nature to flourish in the shade, this gardener's companion highlights the transformation of a barren derelict site into a woodland garden where a maze of paths with lush plants thrive throughout the year. With an unrivalled knowledge of plants, an artist's eye for color, form, and shape, plus over forty years of gardening experience, Chatto shows how the challenge of planting in the shade can be an opportunity that every gardener will want to emulate. Written in an engagingly warm personal style and handsomely illustrated throughout with lavish color photographs, it shows you how your greatest gardening challenge can become your gardening triumph.
