Bringing the Mediterranean into your Garden – how to capture the natural beauty of the garrigue Olivier Filippi £40│ ISBN: 9781999734510 │ 25th April 2019
Mediterranean landscapes are extraordinarily beautiful: alternating mounds of silver and green, flashes of colour and intoxicating scents delight the sense and rival any cultivated garden. This book offers inspiration and expert advice on growing dry-region plants and adopting a more natural way of gardening
Mediterranean plants are diverse and adapted to a wide range of environments and weather conditions. Many will also withstand periods of high rainfall and extreme cold making this book essential reading for temperate-zone gardeners seeking the Mediterranean look.
Filippi’s pioneering approach makes for a much closer relationship between gardener and nature that puts few demands on natural resources. Over 400 fascinating photographs capture the effortless beauty of natural plant communities and show gardeners how different gardens can be.
