A Garden From A Hundred Packets of SeedBook - 2002
A refreshingly simple and free-spirited approach to making a garden for pure pleasure Forget "bones" Forget "structure." Forget trees, shrubs, and perennials. As James Fenton writes, "This is not a book about huge projects. It is about thinking your way towards the essential flower-garden, by the most traditional of routes: planting some seeds and seeing how they grow." In this light-hearted, instructive, original "games of lists," Fenton selects one hundred plants he would choose to grow from seed. Flowers for color, size, and exotic interest; herbs and meadow flowers; climbing vines, tropical species-- Fenton describes one hundred readily available varieties, and tells how to acquire and grow them. Here is a happy, stylish, unpretentious and thought-provoking gardening book that will beguile and inspire both novice and expert alike.
