The style was taken up in the gardens of grand country houses and suburban villas alike, and has been a mainstay of British gardens ever since, mainly because a good one is such a very lovely thing.

      There are three short introductory chapters, starting with what is a native grass, and then follows a well illustrated chapter on their characteristics striking and elegant forms, interesting flowers and seeds and berries, their adaptability and drought tolerance and their decorative value in the garden. Perennials and spring-planted bulbs are shipped at the proper planting time for your hardiness zone. Sow some winter brassicas such as broccoli, brussels sprouts, cauliflower and swedes at this month, so they can be harvested in the winter season. If your order requires more than one shipment and all items are shipping to the same address, there is no additional shipping charge.
