 About the Book 

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 in 2004. No one knew more about meadow gardeningMoreTo 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 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 the UK. 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. Lloyds classic text remains at the heart of this new book. However, here Fergus Garrett, Christopher Lloyds head gardener and his successor at Great Dixter, greatly expands and develops the theme of meadow gardening. Garretts introduction is accompanied by brand new photography by Carol Casselden. This edition is completely redesigned.
