Description - Meadows by Christopher Lloyd
'To see a meadow in bloom is a great delight - it's alive and teeming with life, mysterious, dynamic and seemingly out of our control ...' So Christopher Lloyd began his book on meadows, first published by Cassell in 2004. No one knew more about meadow gardening than Lloyd, who spent much of his long life developing the flowering tapestries in his garden at Great Dixter. In Meadows he imparted that lifetime's learning, exploring the development and management of meadow areas, explaining how to establish a meadow in a garden setting, and describing the hundreds of beautiful grasses, bulbs and perennials and annuals that thrive in different meadow conditions. Lloyd's classic text remains at the heart of this new book, which also includes an extensive new introduction by Fergus Garrett, Lloyd's head gardener and his successor at Great Dixter, and new photography.
