Gardener's Guide to Native Plants of Britain and Ireland|
Britain and Ireland have fascinating
and beautiful wild flowers, but many gardeners are unfamiliar with this precious
This guide is designed to introduce
some of our native plants, revealing them as useful, charming, disease-resistant
and hardworking additions to conventional gardens, rather than as threatening
weeds. Written with infectious enthusiasm, it celebrates the
remarkable qualities of our native plants, and describes their close involvement
in our own heritage in the hope that revealing their rich history may help them
secure a place in the future.
Over 200 of the most
rewarding and easily grown of our wild flowers are featured, their needs and
habits explained, and their historical and cultural significance noted.
Suggestions are given for
their individual use in gardens, so that they may contribute to and enhance
even conventional settings.
Warning are included
about plants that may behave too wildly.
Species accounts are
organised into chapters focussing on the seasons when the plants have their
greatest garden value.
