Format: Hardcover
....... at the fulsome praise this book has been given by previous reviewers. It certainly includes some good images or rather what might have been good images if they had been better printed. They are sadly let down by the publishers' decision to print them matt on soft paper. This means that they appear to be very slightly out of focus and are positively tiring to look at for any length of time (at least to my eyes). The decision must have driven the photographers to distraction and seriously undermines the book as a visual or even coffee table guide to naturalistic gardening.

Is it a planting guide for beginners? Unfortunately not, because the breadth of garden ecologies and design it covers means that individual plant choice has to be limited to the point it seems almost arbitrary. Book format triumphs over content. Anyone looking to inform themselves on how to approach naturalistic gardening would be far better off getting Noel Kingsbury's earlier book 'New Perennial Gardening' which I still regularly refer to after many years for its comprehensive plant guides and its informative approach to garden ecologies. It is a superior book in every sense.

In terms of the gardening areas covered by 'Natural Garden Style', it is very hard to find any decent book attempting to deal with such a broad span of planting and design challenge - sun, shade, water, embellishment. Keith Wiley's recent 'On the Wild Side: Experiments in New Naturalism' is by no means perfect but is a readable, honest and, at the very least, far better printed attempt.

The challenge of covering almost the full gamut of naturalistic gardening in one book is probably a bridge too far for any writer. It will be necessary for even a would-be gardener to buy several books to cover to such a huge task.

I bought this book on a whim, as I was actually looking for reference books but I'm so glad that I did! It is a book more about how we should garden in a way to promote sustainability and restore balance back to the world. Don't get me wrong it's not just for 'green' gardeners as in its own right it provides lots of inspiration for planting combinations etc. It is however written very much in an essay style and in some respects is quite difficult to just dip in and out but well worth persevering as it has helped me to understand what type of garderner I would like to be and how to achieve it. Just looking at the front cover on here makes me want to read it again!

From the cover to the pictures inside - and the words - this is an inspirational read and a must-have for anyone interested in working in their gardens with nature rather than against
