Find and Create Your Perfect Outdoor Space
Edited by Makkie Mulder
Conran Octopus, Reed Books
gorgeously dreamy English style bible is about as far from a practical
gardening manual as you can get. The pictures are almost all in
soft focus, creating a lovely (if not overly useful) impression
of gardening as something that definitely doesn't require dirty
Covering four key styles:
minimalist, cottage, classic and bohemian, Dream Gardens aims
to inspire by encouraging garden owners to use their imaginations.
But it's not all style over substance: at the back there's an extensive
portfolio of garden plants and features to suit each design theme.
Tools and propagation are also covered.
Aimed more at beginners
than experienced gardeners, Dream Gardens might make an
excellent housewarming present for a new garden owner. It will certainly
add class to their coffee table.
