Designed for anyone with a jungle they want to turn into a romantic country-style garden single-handedly, this book is based on Penelope Hobhouse's experiences of reclaiming the garden at Hadspen House, Somerset. The book shows how to clear, plan and plant for minimum upkeep and cost, using plants rather than people and machinery to do the work. This practical guide provides full descriptions of more than 800 plants grouped according to their design role in the garden. The approach can be applied to any garden, large or small, old or new, in country or town.
