Bringing the Mediterranean Into Your Garden

This book offers inspiration and expert advice on growing the plants and adopting a new more natural way of gardening. Mediterranean plants are diverse and adapted to a wide range of environments and weather conditions.

Bringing the Mediterranean Into Your Garden

Mediterranean landscapes are extraordinarily beautiful: alternating mounds of silver and green, textured leaves, flashes of color and intoxicating scents combine to delight the senses and rival any cultivated garden. Olivier explains how to capture the look, based on decades of experience. Mediterranean plants are diverse and adapted to a wide range of environments and weather conditions. They are of course ideally suited to regions which experience long periods of seasonal drought but many will also withstand periods of high rainfall and extreme cold making this essential reading for temperate-zone gardeners seeking the Mediterranean look. Some understanding of plant ecology is essential for success and Filippi shares his expert knowledge acquired from decades of research. How a plant interacts with its environment, other plants, and other living things indicates what it needs to flourish in a garden setting. Filippi's pioneering approach makes for a much closer relationship between gardener and nature that puts few demands on natural resources.
