A guide to the challenges faced by those who garden within a restricted space. The author explains the simple rules to follow when planning, changing and designing a small garden for style and atmosphere. She looks at creating gardens of all types, for families, cooks, a spot of tranquility, or even roof-tops, and in styles from modern to tropical. The book carries useful information on such topics as planting evergreens and "architectural" plants, vertical planting, incorporating changes of level, and night-time gardens. Each chapter features a case study of a garden from the accompanying BBC TV series. A suitable plant directory suggests a selection of trees, climbers, perennials and water plants, among others. Minor shelf wear.
