Here, too, is indispensable advice for using these plants with companions to create striking designs. Each section has an original introduction presenting valuable techniques for making your own natural garden. An appendix gives mail-order sources.

Shade can be a gardener's curse or delight, depending on how it's managed. Even a heavy grove of mature trees needn't have bare ground beneath; they can be surrounded with any number of shade-loving foliage, grasses, or grasslike ground covers, including galax, dichondra, ivy, vinca, wintergreen, maidenhair fern... the list of possibilities is a long one. Druse himself gardens in the shadow of a Brooklyn brownstone, so his advice is by no means limited to gardeners with woodland acreage. This book also successfully punctures the myth that a shady flower garden must be colored in greens and subtle pastels: a parade of brilliant camellias, columbines, clematis, and primula proves that a shade gardener's crayon box is as varied as any, and the well-organized Druse sorts the herbaceous perennials by color in an addendum at the back of the book.


A guide to using natural shade to create beautiful gardens covers all types of shade--wet or dry, partial or dense--suggesting plants for every situation, from rock, to water, to woodland, to container.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Natural Shade Garden 15. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is my second copy of this beautiful book. A friend "borrowed" the first one and never returned it! But I can't blame her because this book is a delight to the eye and a treasure trove of ideas for the shady yard. I must say that I do not have a green thumb, but my once lackluster yard now supports a huge assortment of hosta in every shade of green. You have to love a plant that flourishes in shade, comes up every year with very little care and doubles its size! The photos in this book are beautiful and will make you want to try and recreate the vistas. A wonderful book for the gardener or the lover of beautiful books.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ken Druse has the best series of garden books 28. April 1998
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is one of the 5 best gardening books I have owned. Ken Druse is truly a great plantsman and the photography in this book is the best of any gardening books you will ever find. One of the best things about his books are the combinations of plant types displaying the creative use of form, texture and color as well as seasonal variations to develop the most attractive gardens and spaces. Utilizing cultured and natural plant selections can yield variety as well as that appearance of mother nature doing an extra special job. Don't hesitate to buy any of his books, but this is probably the best. See also Bold Romantic Gardens by Jim Van Sweden and Wolfgang Oehme.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Got shade? Get this book! 5. Juni 2000
Von Buckorama
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There are two reasons to buy this book:
First, it's a great guide, reference and philoshophical perspective on how to garden successfully in the shade. Having gardened in the sun, I was frustrated with the dense shade on the lot around our home. I love trees, but I missed the sun! This book opened my eyes to a way of looking at shade and gardening successfully with it.
Second, this is one of the most beautiful books I've ever owned. Ken Druce's photography and the book's production quality is top of the line. Even if you don't have shade, if you enjoy books on gardening, this is one to add to your collection.

This is a book that makes you create shade so you can grow the plants described.

This book contains species not usually included in other books. I cannot say enough about this book to describe the enjoyment it has given me over the two years I have had it. I live in Québec, my property has around 40 large pine trees, and about the same number of beech trees. Shade is all I have to grow things in, some of it very dense. This book helped me make good decisions on what to plant.
