A feature wall is a great way to showcase a particular plant and on page 15 are 36 varieties of heather stealing the spotlight planted in both the wall and flowerbeds, designed by William Quarmby for a modern, urban low maintenance garden. Featuring a golden Buddha, a pair of fern trees, a stone bench and a water feature, a green cocoon has been designed by Philip Nixon in a small urban garden of just 18 square metres. Create a Mediterranean feel, a living wall, a waterfall, camouflage gates and boundaries with exuberant colour and texture, create a tower of plants using a semi-hydroponic system with tall grasses such as Stipa or Horse Tails at the top. Gardening vertically presents an excellent opportunity also to grow fruit, herbs and vegetables in a restricted space with edible walls packed with lettuces, leaves, herbs, strawberries and dwarf tomatoes. Create your own miniature, hanging garden with a mosaic of succulents following the 14 simple instructions and step-by-step colour photos and list of plants used in these textured and quite stunning designs.
