The New Exotic Garden

Author(s): Giles, Will


A celebration of the exotic-style garden, where vibrant colour, dramatic architectural shapes and lush tropical leaves fill every available space. Experienced sub-tropical plant grower Will Giles proves how easy it is to grow lush and hot-coloured plants in temperate as well as hot climate gardens and that many 'tender' plants can easily survive cold winters. Besides chapters on the different types of exotic plants - from cool and lush to brightly coloured to drier Mediterranean-style gardens, there is also a practical guide to planting and maintaining exotics, as well as directory of key plants, organised by climate. A book that will inspire all garden lovers attracted to visually dramatic gardens of year-round interest that use plants which hint at warmer climates.
