In this book, pioneering garden designers Henk Gerritsen and Piet Oudolf describe their ideal perennials, bulbs, grasses, ferns and small shrubs. An ideal plant is one that is both beautiful and robust, performing reliably with very little input from the gardener. Gerritsen and Oudolf have a genuinely innovative approach to gardening. Rather than striving for big, bold masses of colourful blooms that are vigorously pruned back as soon as they have finished flowering, the authors choose plants chiefly for their form - leaves, flower heads and stems included - which means they retain their natural beauty through all the seasons.

Techniques for biodynamic and organic gardening combine with spiritual knowledge in this guide to planting in tune with the earth. Written by an expert gardener who had an awakening into consciousness while landscaping, the handbook offers both practical knowledge on the physical aspects of gardening-such as mulching, compost, compounds, insects, and soil protection-as well as the more metaphysical side-such as the spirit of the land, garden energy, and the unseen connections to the earth. This passionate and applicable resource shows that by switching to a being-with outlook from a doing-to attitude, growers will develop gorgeous flowers, herbs, and vegetables as well as a deep affection for nature.

Just as an aborist must understand the development and functions of a tree in order to fully understand his actions in relation to it, so must a land...
