Synopsis

Woodland plants add magic to any garden, with lush carpets of color, foliage at the middle level, and majestic height. Contrary to myth, large spaces and special soil are not required. Drawing on her own experience running a thriving woodland nursery, the author provides seasoned advice on the unique challenges of woodland gardening, including managing light levels, choosing the right plant for the right place, and achieving the well-balanced soil structure that is often key to growing a variety of woodland plants. Extensive planting suggestions will endow gardeners at all levels of experience with the confidence to experiment, and the extensive plant directory will inspire all gardeners to bring woodland plants into the garden for year-round pleasure.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you live in Somerset, England, this book will be an irreplaceable guide to improving your woodland . . . or creating one from scratch. Ms. Junker is from Somerset, and her perspective is heavily dependent on those growing conditions. If you live someplace that's much colder, you'll need to check on the plants that interest you to see if they survive the winters in your area. To help with that, Ms. Junker provides a list of places where you can see woodland plants in the United States and the United Kingdom, as well as nurseries that have display gardens to demonstrate woodland plant concepts. The gardens and nurseries may not be right next door, but I'm sure you'll enjoy the trip.

The book opens with Ms. Junker's concepts for a woodland garden, taking it from the perspective of not having a tree canopy through to already having one. She favors thinking of your woodland garden in three layers: the canopy of tall trees, intermediate plants (like rhododendrons), and flowering plants that will do well on the woodland floor (especially bulbs and ferns). She talks helpfully about how to deal with spaces of all sizes and degrees of being wooded.

I found the book very helpful since our property is heavily wooded with many intermediate layer flowering plants. But we haven't done much with the ground layer, so the book's ideas were intriguing to me. In addition, she drew my attention to ornamental tall and intermediate trees and plants that could provide some interesting variety in our woodland.

To me, the photographs helped the most. I could identify flowering plants by name that I've seen do well in our area. Combined with her information, I have the basis for many interesting experiments.

Excellent Design Ideas Combined with Plant Profiles and Photographs: Check with Your Nursery for Local Versions That Winter Well 1. August 2007

The book's main drawback is that plant directory (the bulk of the book) is not as fully illustrated as I would have liked. I suspect that the solution is to look up the formal botanical names on the Internet to find photographs that illustrate what's being described.

Ms. Junker has obviously forgotten more about woodland gardens than I'll ever know. It's great to be able to draw on her experience and ideas.

Nice work, Ms. Junker!

Drawbacks 22. September 2007
Von S. Burton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
After examining a library copy, I decided not to purchase this title. In addition to the drawbacks noted by another reviewer (British emphasis and sparse photographs), the book lacks zone information and a common name index.

Great Source Book for Shade Garden 15. Juni 2008
Von S. Kinzer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book has full color photo illustrations on almost every page. It is a great companion to my favorite regional shade gardening book "Got Shade" which has relatively few photos. For the price, you are not going to find a book with more photos of plants. Although the author gardens in England, I found most of the information to be transferable. I would say that probably 70-75% of the plants she describes are native to North America.

I will say that I did find the lack of a common names index to be a weakness at first, but common names vary from region to region, and therefore sticking with the latin probably makes this book useful to a broader group of readers.

I checked this book out at the Library before purchasing it, and I have to say that I completely disagree with the earlier reviews.
Very helpful illustrations and information 16. Dezember 2013
Von Rama - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Who knew there were so many ways to create a woodland garden?

This is one of several books we bought to help us think about and come up with ideas for a woodland garden at our newly-purchased home in the mountains of Western North Carolina. We wanted to create a garden that would complement our woodland setting and be easy to maintain.

The steep terrain and the large size of the project meant that we had to hire a landscaper to do the heavy work, but the ideas and illustrations in this book gave us what we needed to express our needs and preferences and to have a productive dialog with our landscaper.

Given the high cost of landscape projects, buying a few books to help develop ideas and understanding of the many options is a worthwhile investment. I have not found just one book that covers everything about woodland gardens--for this topic the two books I bought seemed to provide a broad base of information.
