Dig It! Planting design book (8 June 2020)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces// WRS// General // June 8, 2020

This week we are looking at the new book from Nigel Dunnett, called "Naturalistic Planting Design: An Essential Guide" published by Filbert Press. If you've visited the Olympic Park in London or seen the planting at the Barbican, you'll have already enjoyed his unique work. This book takes you through his thinking and the design process toolkit to get similar effects in any size space. Full of luscious photos, this makes a great gift for a nature-loving gardener as well as anyone interested in the nuts and bolts of planting or landscape design.
