The Principles of Classic Planning and Plant Selection

With inspiration coming from past designers such as Gertrude Jekyll, Donald Chilvers has written a book aimed at today's world which will appeal to people who either wish to make radical changes to an established garden or to convert a 'greenfield' site. It will be of great interest to those who may contemplate entering the design field themselves and its composition will appeal to people who like to read about garden experiences in general.

The first section includes a short chapter by an art historian describing the connection between artists and garden design (in the days before photography, paintings were the source of inspiration and explanation. The heart of the book describes the tasks undertaken by the author, in both big and small gardens, and shows how each challenge was successfully met. The last two sections describe the names and design characteristics of shrubs and plants which are most often used by the author.

This absorbing book is packed with information and is beautifully illustrated with individual garden designs and outstanding photographs.
