Gardeners are moving away from tidy borders and neat velvet lawns to more expressive areas of plants grown within a natural movement of design. Who better to explain how to do this than the Dutch international garden designers, Henk Gerritsen and Piet Oudolf. Dream Plants for the Natural Garden suggests 1,200 plant species which they consider practical for the average garden. Each is give its Latin and common name with a brief description and notes of favourable conditions and flowering period.

The book covers perennials, bulbs, grasses, ferns and small shrubs, all of which the authors believe will continue growing, flowering and seeding for many years There are three main sections covering tough (perennials, grasses, ferns, bulbs and shrubs), playful (self-seeding perennials, biennials and annuals) and troublesome plants (invasive, capricious and demanding), explaining how to deal with them. Piet Oudolf has nurseries near Arnheim where he is practised in choosing plants that are easy to maintain and mainly disease resistant. Both he and Henk Gerritsen took many of the photographs that illustrate the text.

Dream Plants for the Natural Garden is an ideal reference book. Use some of the ideas to enliven your own garden or create an imaginative new one. --Judy Wyles -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

This is a beautiful book to look at AND a useful book to work with. Given you are into the "Oudolf"-style, of course. This means not the usual neat and tidy look but the wild and nonchalant one. For those people this book serves almost like a manual for the planning phase of planting. The structure of the book reminds me quite of Karl Foerster's plant lists mentioning plant character, habitat, soil conditions and mostly and above all: lots of real-life experience with the plants which the authors pass on to the readers. Under the condition that plants should be easy to care for, look luscious, and fit the place's needs the authors have put together a compendium of preferrable plants which meet the aesthetical requirements of the wild and natural looking aspects. However, this is not a book giving advice on how to put a planting together, so maybe rather appealing to the more advanced gardener who is following his own visions concerning garden design as well as color and form principles. Should be in the rack of any ambitious person dealing with so called natural designs.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful reference book for plant species and cultivars that have done well in gardens round the world. 26. März 2014
Von gt surber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Dream Plants: Over 1200 beautiful and reliable plants for a natural garden is a beautiful well designed book intended to list plants that World Famous Garden Designers Piet Oudolf and Henk Gerritsen have found to be reliable in their gardens.

The brief introduction and preface set the stage for a potpourri of plants from “tough perennials” to “playful” to Troublesome.” There comes a list of 1200 plants that these two world famous garden designers have selected as useful, reliable, sturdy, and mostly low maintenance in the many gardens they have designed. The few words are a good read. The 250 plus pictures of flowers are marvelously beautiful and details. The descriptions give zone, sun/shade preference, height and width, comments and some useful growing hints. The index appears complete. With the organization of this book, you can start with your problem area find plants to fit in most cases. They do not cover wetlands, or trees or large shrubs.

Recognizing that this book is intended for world wide audiences, the selections are at times a little strange, but their choices are well explained. Many of the plants are simple basic common. Many of the plants are unusual. In many cases the exact cultivar the authors used is listed with alternatives. Many of the plants we can only dream of as they are not in our zone or range. But the selections for even Zone 3 are plentiful and well done.

Is this the end all book on plant selection? No! However, this is a very useful, beautiful reference book with which to research plants you find in you local nurseries and stores and with to dream of gardens far away.. A local guide is still very necessary, whether a guide book, or a local plant expert.

A good book to have in any gardener's library.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gardening Dreams 2. Mai 2014
Von James Guilford - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I love this book. The pictures are beautiful and in color. There is a variety of plants and plant combinations with clear identification of each. I like the overall theme of planting with grasses and low maintenance with such a beautiful outcome. I love that the designs are planned out to have a year round appeal and even though some of the plants may not be available in the US, enough information has been given so that you can find a substitute. So much can be done if you learn the basics and this book does that.
