This work demonstrates how plants themselves can do much of the hard work associated with gardening and looks critically at many traditional practices. Garden plants all possess the genes that enable their wild counterparts to combine successfully into communities, and using "matrix planting", the book shows how to provide the conditions they need to get on with it. It includes case studies drawn from all parts of the world, with overviews, outcomes and plant lists, and also covers care of the soil.
