Format: Hardcover
My copy of Beth Chatto’s Gravel garden is very well thumbed so I decided that her ‘Woodland Garden’ would be useful to get as well. I find her writing and planting ideas very inspirational and this book illustrates her ideas well. The way it is divided up into different sections for different seasons is well thought out and is very useful to me as a garden designer, but would also be an enjoyable read for anyone interested in gardening and plants. It is very descriptive of plants and their situations, but is also a personal notebook of her observations and feelings as well as having interesting remarks about other gardeners she knows. Although the book is describing a largish area of woodland, it is a useful book for any woody or shady area where you need inspiration.

Excellent guide to plants for shade. Covers both the obvious and the obscure so likely to be something of interest to all. Would've liked more photographs but those that are there are good. Author is generous in sharing her experience but not quite so readable as Christopher Lloyd.

Looking at my rectangular east-facing patch, with the shade from my own shrubs and hedges and my neighbours' trees, it was hard to work out what to do with it. Inspiration came from Beth Chatto's book, obviously written to describe more expansive areas, but it is well suited for the gardener with a taste for the unusual who wants to adapt her sound advice to their own circumstances. A quick look at the index and noting that my favourites (anemones, clematis, hostas and paeonies for starters), set me on my path and fifteen years on a reasonable stab at a garden with plants (feet in the shade, head in the sun) that thrive in the dappled light that the woodland offers its smaller plant inhabitants. Still puzzling how to get some colour in the summer garden - it's all a bit ... well ... green, but spring is when it really comes to life - my ferns and my arums are sensational - so all is good. Highly recommended as a practical guide, a plantswoman's manifesto, or just a good old fireside read.
