A Woodland Garden - A.T. Johnson, 1937.

Regular price €30.00


 Description: Majestic trees tower over a lush ground covering, letting dappled light fall onto the bright flowers peering through the leaves...a woodland garden can be a dramatic scene.In this book A. T. Johnson recounts his successes and failures among the limitless choices for choosing flowers, shrubs, ground coverings, and trees, and explains how to care for all of them - although many care for themselves. And Johnson journeys beyond standard design with discussions of such special challenges as how to accomplish winter color through evergreens and how to accentuate autumn color in a glade.Gleaned from decades of planning, planting, and maintaining his own woodland garden, Johnson's insights are invaluable. This book is an eminently practical yet magnificently written primer on how to garden with, not against, nature. (51/2 X 81/4, 258 pages, b&w photos)
