MY TINY GARDEN


MY TINY GARDEN

LUCY ANNA SCOTT & L. CONOCHIE    Book Number: 91937    Product format: Hardback

With mini meadows, blooming balconies and plant-packed pavements, the authors of this beautiful design book have unearthed 25 amazing and unconventional small green spaces. There is a kokedama hanging garden, rooftop retreat, night-scented pots, desktop garden, floating flora, indoor window garden, aquatic terrarium, seaside romance, alpine wall planter, a mobile bog garden, a planted patio garden, gabion insect garden, a tiny pond garden, and moonlit magic. For each is a beautiful colour photograph of the people involved, their planting ideas, the design and build and in some cases step-by-step photographs to achieve stylish solutions. For example, colourful alpine plants are a superb choice for shallow planters with their intricate detail of foliage and flowers, colours and textures shown here in salvaged steel C-section beams with an attractive rustic quality or for a more lightweight alternative you could use plastic guttering. Enliven your workspace with a zero-size cactus and succulent planter using drawers or any portable container in a sunny window with coarse gravel for drainage and a minimal care routine. See an urban terrace teeming with birds, bees and at night fireflies, large black raspberries on a shady terrace, white flowers and light floral tones keeping a dark space bright and cheerful. Blackberries work well in containers and can be highly productive and once again in this book we are shown how to make a Japanese moss ball or kokedama - a really nifty way of utilising space in a small garden, they can be hung above borders, on balconies or across passageways to provide colour and interest with plants such as pelargonium. A really beautiful showcase, 160 large pages, packed with colour photos.
