Following on from their hugely successful first book, Outdoors , Diarmuid Gavin and Terence Conran collaborate once again to create PLANTING, a stunning and imaginative resource of planting schemes that work for almost any garden space.

Using case studies to look at real examples of inspiring planting schemes around the world in detail, PLANTING explores nature's vast palette of plants, where they come from, what grows naturally in which conditions, but most importantly, how they are used in gardens all around the world in contemporary times.

From how to look at a garden through a designer's eyes, to planning for color, texture and mood, as well as how to attract wildlife, PLANTING covers everything a gardener needs to know in the twenty-first century, whether they are planning an exotic paradise or an edible kitchen garden.
