The Eden Project in Cornwall, England is unique as a botanic garden: it is young enough that those who created it are still around to share their vast gardening knowledge. Written and photographed during a year spent with Eden’s experts, this book focuses on Eden’s various habitats and how they are gardened; the horticultural techniques used and the lessons learned; and how this gardening expertise and experience can be applied to one’s own garden. Genuinely inspirational, this gardening guide is lavishly illustrated and full of practical advice.
