Updated and revised.

This book is both a valuable reference and a practical how-to guide to hundreds of plant species suited for cultivation beneath a canopy of mature trees. Here is all the information needed to get started: design, plant selection, planting and maintenance. These principles can be applied anywhere in North America in any size garden, from large estate to a cramped city lot.

This revised edition of The Woodland Garden features new, beautiful color images throughout, a larger format and more text.

An authoritative guide for gardeners and landscape designers, this edition focuses on:

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

The authors list their favorite plants with detailed descriptions of the best woodland garden performers including lilies and rhododendrons. Practical information is provided for 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, how to analyze a site and much more.

Helpful tips throughout offer useful advice gleaned from the authors' decades of collective experience: dealing with weeds and pests, preparing the land, watering, mulching and propagation.
