New Wild Garden book aimed at designers and seed suppliers

A new book shows how to understand and emulate the natural style followed by designers including Piet Oudolf.

Former RHS The Garden editor Ian Hodgson has written a new book providing a "comprehensive overview of the most influential movement in garden design in recent decades".

The book "reveals how to incorporate wildflowers, real meadows and looser prairie-style planting into any garden or undeveloped outdoor soace and is ideal for any gardener wanting to plant in a more natural and sustainable way".

New Wild Garden features 15 step-by-step planting projects to create a range of wild-style gardens using new approaches.

The book shows how to grow and propagate more than 150 plants using the meadow recipes for every soil, situation and wildlife habitat.

Gardeners, wildlife lovers, professional designers and see manufacturers are among the intended audiences.

Contributions, advice or inspiration came from Oudolf, Andrew Fisher Tomlin, James Hitchmough and Nigel Dunnett, Acres Wild, James Basson, Helen Elks-Smith and others.

The book is published by Frances Lincoln at £25 on 5 May ahead of World Biodiversity Day on 22 May and World Environment Day on 5 June.
