The Woodland Garden
This revised edition of The Woodland Garden, a luscious redesign of an inspiring and practical garden reference, features a gorgeous new layout and full-colour photos throughout.

The book covers all aspects of the process—from design, plant selection and initial planting through ongoing maintenance—in easy-to-follow text and drawings.

This wonderful book contains principles that can be applied anywhere in North America where gardeners garden—from the rainforest to the desert—in almost any size of garden, from public gardens and private estates right down to city lots.

Too often, artificial planting schemes are imposed on the natural landscape. In a woodland garden, Nature’s ways can be stimulated or restored in easy-to-maintain gardens that delight the senses. This authoritative and beautiful book shows you how to create a natural woodland effect in your garden.

A valuable source of information on hundreds of plant species ideally suited for planting in the woodland environment, it gives you all the information you need to get started.

Roy Forster is a master gardener whose most significant achievement has been guiding the creation of VanDusen Botanical Garden in Vancouver, a world-recognized prime example of woodland gardening.

Alex Downie is curator of the Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver.
