Description
New Ways with Perennials | Noel Kingsbury

The way perennials have been used in gardens and landscapes has changed dramatically over the last twenty years. Noel Kingsbury, well-known as a promotor of naturalistic planting, looks at the diverse, colourful and long-season plantings used by designers such as Piet Oudolf and university-based researchers who are busy creating recipes for sustainable planting mixes. Noel looks at how feasible these perennial combinations are for domestic gardeners.
