9780881929287: The Rock Garden Plant Primer: Easy, Small Plants for Containers, Patios, and the Open Garden

It's not necessary to have a traditional rock garden to enjoy rock garden plants. In fact, these colorful, small plants are perfect for the pots, containers, window boxes, and raised beds that are the mainstays of modern gardens.

World-renowned botanist Christopher Grey-Wilson recommends easy-to-grow plants for a variety of garden situations including shade, mixed borders, and patios. Introductory chapters explain how to grow and care for these gardener-friendly plants that are cold-hardy and adaptable. Detailed plant descriptions are based on his personal experience of seeing the plants in the wild and growing them in the garden. Includes excellent photographs to aid in selection and identification.

About the Author:

Christopher Grey-Wilson has been the Editor of the Alpine Garden Society since 1990, and is also a freelance horticultural writer and photographer. For many years he was a Principal Scientific Officer at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, working as a Research Botanist, and as Editor of Curtis' Botanical Magazine. He has been on a number of major botanical expeditions in pursuit of the mountain floras of Europe and Asia, particularly those of the Himalaya and southwest China. He is the author of several books regarded as standard works, including The Genus Cyclamen, The Illustrated Flora of Britain and Northern Europe, How to Identify Wild Flowers, The Alpine Flowers of Britain and Northern Europe, A Manual of Alpine and Rock Garden Plants, and The Alpine Garden. He serves on a number of committees of the Royal Horticultural Society, who recently awarded him a Gold Veitch Memorial Award.

From Booklist:

Rock gardens appear to be difficult to maintain, and part of a specialized gardening world. Grey-Wilson’s approach is to show gardeners how to cultivate lovely and diverse small plants that are not delicate or hard to grow. Design ideas are presented that arrange rock garden plants in settings ranging from scree to raised beds, lawns, and containers. Grey-Wilson advises on how to care for and propagate plants, and provides background on the complementary plant forms that promise to open up a new realm for avid green thumbs. Cushion, matted, and rosette types, along with annuals, bulbs, and dwarf shrubs comprise the primer’s informative and extensive A to Z listings. A trove of plant possibilities to expand the repertoire of most any garden to zone 6 is covered in entries that provide detailed information on plant requirements and recommendations for the best species and cultivars. Enthusiasts with sunny gardens should find endless inspiration among the myriad gem-like specimens that Grey-Wilson introduces, and woodland gardeners will also discover new treasures. --Alice Joyce
