Naturalistic Planting Design – The Essential Guide is the first book to present naturalistic planting as an exciting and achievable alternative to traditional planting methods. Naturalistic gardens are rich in plants and wildlife and require little in the way of watering, weeding, staking, fertilizing and replanting.

By following a simple set of rules and principles readers will be able to create ‘designed plant communities’ that are naturally beautiful, beneficial to the planet, full of interest in every season, and easy to look after. It’s the essential go-to guide for anyone wishing to join the adventure and plant the naturalistic way.
