Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a keen interest in spiky plants, Holliday argues that gardens don't have to look "nice" — packed with delicate roses and pretty clematis. There is much to be said for a crisp, clean-lined planting style featuring swords, straps, and spikes. This book presents a careful selection of plants that are spiky, sharp, or brittle, whether in their stems, leaves, or flowers, so that gardeners can choose new and exciting plants that work well in their landscape. From xeriscapes to maritime gardens and everywhere in between, all adventurous plantspeople will find fresh ideas for adding a little excitement to their garden.

Synopsis:

Explores using a crisp, clean-lined planting style featuring swords, straps, and spikes. From xeriscapes to maritime gardens, adventurous gardeners will find fresh ideas for adding excitement and interest to their gardens. 180 color photos.
