Fans of Piet Oudolf will delight in this revised edition of Planting the Natural Garden. Packed with plant information, new photography, and an introduction from Noel Kingsbury. It includes hundreds of eye-catching plant combinations, with an emphasis on the use of themed plantings that create mood and evoke emotion.
