Rockeries are often a simple addition to a garden that can completely change it, providing an interesting focal point and giving your outside space a bit of much-needed variety. "The Modern Rock Garden " is a classic guide to creating a beautiful rockery, with chapters on what and how to plant, general design, propagating shrubs and alpine plans, common problems, and much more. Highly recommended for keen gardeners and DIY enthusiasts. Contents Include: "Preparation", "Construction", "The Moraine or Scree Garden", "Sinks and Troughs", "The Rock Bed", "Planting and After-care", "Propagation", "Shrubs and their Uses", "Alpine Plants", "Bulbs", and "Some other Treasures, and Conclusion". Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
