Publisher Comments:

A woodland area enhances any garden and offers an opportunity to grow some of the most desirable garden plants. Many gardeners fear their property is too small or lacks suitable soil for woodland plants, but Karan Junker debunks this myth and describes how gardens everywhere may grow a diverse range of plants for the upper canopy, middle layer, and woodland floor.

Drawing on her own experience running a thriving woodland nursery, Junker provides seasoned advice on the unique challenges of woodland gardening, including managing light levels, choosing the right plant for the right place, and achieving the well-balanced soil structure that is often key to growing a variety of woodland plants. Deatiled guidance covers an array of woodland features, such as raised beds, rock gardens, hedgerows, and plantings around single trees. The cultivation of multilayered plantings is vital to woodland gardening; extensive planting suggestions will endow gardeners at all levels of experience with the confidance to experiment. At the heart of the book is a comprehensive plant directory showcasing a wide spectrum of garden-worthy plants, including cultivars with particularly vauable garden features that also retain a native woodland character. Inventive ideas will inspire gardeners everywhere to make space for woodland plants for year-round pleasure.

Book News Annotation:

British horticulturist Junker (she runs a nursery in Somerset), who's gifted with an engaging writing style, has written a complete guide to woodland plants full of ideas and information for the amateur and specialist gardener. Initial chapters discuss woodland areas and design, with attention to color, season, layers, and preparation. Most of the volume is devoted to an A-Z plant directory, where the history, uses, and characteristics of an impressive collection of plants, including new cultivars, are described.
