Title: Cultivating Chaos, How to Enrich Landscapes with Self-Seeding Plants
From the Publisher:
Self-seeding plants can create naturalistic gardens of great charm, but left to their own devices quickly spiral out of control. Maintaining the balance of plants so that a small number of robust species do not evict the others and developing the structure of the garden are important techniques to acquire. Taking inspiration from the gardens of Christopher Lloyd, Derek Jarman and Henk Gerritsen. Cultivating Chaos teaches how to prepare your soil for improved germination, guide your planting as it evolves, and create different ecological niches from which will emerge beautiful, species-rich gardens.
SUCH an inspiring book for creating native gardens rich in grasses and ornamentals. Note: These are NOT maintenance free gardens...but with that said, with rake, shears, a little work, and "Cultivating Chaos" it's all doable.
