Product information "Staudenraritäten"
The wonderful realm of shrubs has much more to offer than can be suspected from gardening centres. This elaborately illustrated handbook opens the treasure trove of the most exquisite species and varieties. All 90 rare species presented can be raised in your own garden – the book describes in detail how you succeed at it. Design proposals help to perfectly stage the shrub stars in the best locations for each, such as dry stone walls, Alpine garden or in the classic shrubbery bed. An additional chapter about outdoor orchids and special bulb flowers, as well as interviews with experienced gardeners of rare species provide well-rounded information about the topic. An inspiring gardening book for everyone who loves specialities.
