Gardens designed by Paul Bangay are renowned for their elegant proportions, careful use of materials and inspired choice of planting. In one garden precise box hedging frames billowing beds of perennials; in another, olive trees emerge from an undergrowth of rosemary against a dr...amatic coastal landscape. In a Paul Bangay garden, you can be sure that every plant has been carefully selected to achieve a particular purpose at a specific site. Now expanded and fully updated, this guide is the perfect companion to Paul Bangay's Garden Design Handbook, which revealed Paul's insights into successful garden design and construction, and answers the question: what do I plant and where? Rich with anecdotes about what has worked best over the years, and with a special focus on plants for our changing climate, this collection showcases Paul's A-list plants with photography from the best in the business, Simon Griffiths. Whether for an inner-city courtyard or a rambling rural estate, this book contains the practical advice readers need to give their own patch of green the Paul Bangay look. The chapters throughout focus on the uses of each plant: from hedges to groundcovers, climbers to plants for pots. Paul Bangay's Guide to Plants includes advice on planting schemes, colour schemes and how to select the right plant for your site.
