From the creator of "one of the most exciting and innovative gardens in Britain today"

With their moss-covered stones, towering trees, and pockets of quiet shade, woodlands have a romantic power unlike anything else. Whether your garden is currently open and sunny, or on the small side, you can capture that sylvan atmosphere with carefully chosen trees and shade-loving plants. In Designing and Planting the Woodland Garden, Keith Wiley explains how to combine plants in natural, self-supporting colonies. His hand-picked selection of unexpected collectables—shrubs, perennials, bulbs, ferns, and grasses—mingle with garden favorites to create fabulous effects in all seasons.

Choosing the right plant for the right place is essential and in Designing and Planting the Woodland Garden, Keith Wiley explains how to combine shade-loving plants and trees to create the richness of a forested woodland in your own garden.
