David L. Culp, Adam Levine
Usually ships within 24 to 48 hours unless otherwise noted in the product description.
Brandywine Cottage is David Culp's beloved 2-acre Pennsylvania garden, where he mastered the design technique of layering — interplanting many different species in the same area so that as one plant passes its peak, another takes over. The result is a nonstop parade of color that begins with a tapestry of heirloom daffodils and hellebores in spring and ends with a jewel-like blend of Asian wildflowers at the onset of winter.
The Layered Garden shows you how to re-create Culp's majestic display. It starts with a basic lesson in layering — how to choose the correct plants by understanding how they grow and change throughout the seasons, how to design a layered garden, and how to maintain it. To illustrate how layering works, Culp takes you on a personal tour through each part of his celebrated garden: the woodland garden, the perennial border, the kitchen garden, the shrubbery and the walled garden. The book culminates with a chapter dedicated to signature plants for all four seasons.
