The variety of species of ornamental grasses available today have made them an integral part of garden design. This book inspires amateur gardeners and enthusiasts to undertake more in-depth projects including choosing the right grasses for planting in the shade, how to create a container jungle of grasses and bringing the 'prairie' direct to your doorstep. Beautiful artistic impressions of the completed projects and a vast selection of stunning photographs provide a fascinating insight into what can be achieved by correct planting. The comprehensive A-Z of grasses, listed by botanical names, contains further information on selecting the right plant for your garden scheme.
