SHADE

Every garden has some shade—some gardens are mostly shaded. Unfortunately, most gardeners see shade as a problem. Questions about what to plant in shady parts of the garden are among the most frequent posed in gardeners' magazines, phone-ins, and online discussions. In Shade, award-winning gardening expert Keith Wiley turns all the familiar preconceptions on their heads by presenting garden shade in a positive light, showing how you can create tapestries of color using wild woodland flowers from around the world, as well as modern varieties derived from them.

Keith Wiley first discusses shade—from dappled and partial to full and dense—in different situations and in every size and type of garden. He then considers the characteristics of shade-loving plants, showing how to use them with companions to create striking designs. He also looks att the practicalities of preparing, planting, and maintaining a shade garden.

Complete with a directory of shade-loving plants, Shade shows you how to turn shady areas into the highlights of your garden.
