A Basket By The Door - Sophie Hansen



Alyce says, “If you’re starting out designing your garden, or looking to do a mass overhaul, this is the book for you. From the ground up this book has it all covered - the whole time looking at the big picture, unlike other books which dive deep into the intricacies of each plant (those books are brilliant, but not exactly what you need when designing the whole thing at the start!). This book covers all the foundations including soil and watering systems, designing functional spaces in your garden for entertaining, relaxing and growing food, understanding trees, shrubs, bulbs, perennials, annuals, water plants etc. My favourite part of the book is the plant chooser, where you can quickly see (with pictures!) the best plants for screening, winter interest, hardy perennials, plants for scent, ground covers in shade… it’s best when choosing what plant to plant where!”
