Review quote

'The landmark book by an historically significant designer and wildly knowledgeable plantsman ... Piet Oudolf ranks among the greats, and his co-author Noel Kingsbury is his prophet. The book design by Dutch artist Irma Boom turns this into something extraordinary ... All should win prizes' - BBC Gardens Illustrated 'Impressive, modern, mind-altering ... the perfect tome to indulge deeper into Oudolf's Dutch genius' - English Garden 'A stunning display of Oudolf's oeuvre ... Admirers of Oudolf's work, and anyone interested in designing with perennials or in naturalistic planting, will find this book repays close attention and is a useful addition to their bookshelf' - Garden Design Journal 'Refreshingly presented in a way that allows the documentation of Oudolf's work to speak for itself - light on text and heavy on double-page photographs in which you can lose yourself' - House & Garden
