THE LOOKING GLASS GARDEN

SKU:

By Peter Thompson Take a trip to the Southern Hemisphere with Peter Thompson and see a whole new world of pants and gardens. Thompson wants us to extend our range of garden plants and touches on 1500 Southern Hemisphere plants and the role they could play in our gardens. He dispels the myth that these plants are too difficult to grow here, showing how these incredible trees, shrubs, flowers, vines , grasses and foliage plants can be used in sun or shade and hot or cool gardens. These plants have a forceful impact with their wild, exotic shapes, sizes and colors. Thompson demonstrates innovative ways to assimilate them into gardens using case studies of gardens where they are used. Hundreds of exquisite color plates illustrate these plants in their native habitats and in gardens. Thompson's book is also a fascinating personal account of places, people, plants and gardens encountered. Hardcover 451 pp
