Dry gardens can be a challenge but can also be used to the gardener's advantage to produce some exciting results. This totally practical compendium of easy to follow advice and lucidly presented professional information examines some of the causes and symptoms and offers stage-by-stage solutions to the "problem" of the dry garden. The detailed alphabetical directory presents a range of plants suitable for dry conditions, with most plants illustrated in colour to enable them to be readily identified when choosing and purchasing. Each directory entry contains a description, comments on different varieties and suggestions for their successful cultivation, together with data on size, suitable soil conditions and ideal sites. A range of helpful checklists organizes plants according to special conditions, simplifying their selection still further.
