Do you know a folly from a ha-ha? Can an allée be pleached? Does a skep belong on a plinth? It might sound like a different language, but it's one that gardeners can learn. Offering straightforward suggestions, intriguing stories, and visual delights, Suzanne Staubach covers everything from arbors to water features, reveling in the anecdotes that accompany each element. Filled with fanciful illustrations by Julia Yellow, this alphabetical miscellany is a guide to orchards and labyrinths, hammocks and compost bins.
"The right amount of useful advice and, when applicable, educational historical tidbits…. A pleasure to read and a valuable resource to fall back on for the enthusiastic gardener."—Publishers Weekly
