Native plant gardening is a landscape trend that has taken hold in North America as gardeners search for a truly indigenous style of gardening. Attractive to both a new generation of gardener who grew up in an era of environmental concerns and to the established green thumb who is looking for something new, naturalistic gardening offers a low maintenance, sure success and distinctive style of gardening.
From a tiny urban forest in Vancouver to a beautiful wildflower garden on the prairies,
Grow Wild celebrates the aesthetic triumphs of this newly emerging trend with over 100 colour photographs of gorgeous native plant gardens and wildflowers. Twenty inspiring and successful native plant gardens across northern North America are profiled, from the coastal plains of British Columbia through the central prairies and to the forests of the eastern seaboard.
Grow Wild also includes native plant lists, a resource directory that details native plant gardens worth visiting in each ecological region, as well as practical advice on how to create a stunning native plant garden. Laced with quirky humour and a down-to-earth perspective, Grow Wild offers gardeners the tools they need to create beautiful gardens that take their cue from nature.
