Synopsis:

The Woodland Garden is a valuable source of information and a practical how-to guide on hundreds of plant species ideally suited for planting in the woodland environment. Here is all the information needed to get started, from design, plant selection and initial planting through ongoing maintenance, using principles that can be applied anywhere in North America in almost any size garden - from large estate to city lot.

The book is easy-to-follow and clearly illustrated. Including zonal maps, a bibliography and over 80 pages of suitable plants, shrubs and climbers, The Woodland Garden features:

  • Designing the Woodland Garden
  • Building the Woodland Garden
  • The Canopy - plus a list of woodland trees
  • The Understory - plus a list of woodland shrubs
  • Plants of the Woodland Floor
  • Climbing Plants
  • Planting, Pruning and Maintenance
  • Authors' Favorite Plants - 109 detailed descriptions of the best woodland garden performers

Helpful tips throughout offer useful advice gleaned from the authors' decades of collective experience. They explain weeds and pests, preparing the land, watering and mulching, propagation. They discuss lilies and rhododendrons, soil characteristics, adapting a property, working with a new site, and converting an old garden. There are sections on fragrance, water, rocks, pathways, scale and unity plus how to analyze a site, design a woodland garden, and much more.

About the Author:

R. Roy Forster is a master gardener who helped guide the creation of VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, British Columbia, a world-recognized prime example of woodland gardening.

Alex Downie is curator of the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Park, also a public garden known worldwide.
