Abstract/Notes Chris Beardshaw shows readers how to develop gardens that are in tune with nature, where plants will flourish with minimum effort. The book is based on his TV series, The Flying Gardener, in which Chris looks at plants in different habitats and discovers how nature achieves what the gardener strives for. He reveals how to put this knowledge into practice when selecting and cultivating plants for a domestic setting. The book begins with a chapter that enables gardeners to understand the conditions in which they garden and how these will affect their choice of plants. Chris identifies five types of garden ? rock, water, wood, wetland and meadow gardens - and explores each in detail in the following chapters. He includes practical information on plant selection, maintenance and pruning, and the book is peppered with fascinating facts about both domestic and wild gardens. The Natural Gardener proves that the best gardeners are those who understand the importance of the conditions in which they garden ? and that the best teacher is nature itself.
