Michael McCoy is 'The Gardenist': garden designer, author, broadcaster and obsessive home gardener. In this bold new look at gardens, he shares the secret to understanding what makes a good garden, and shows you how to plan and create your own. 'The Gardenist' teases out the anatomy of gardens to discover the roles played by different plants. Michael shows you how to harness the structural power of trees and shrubs to deliberately shape a deeply satisfying outdoor space, and then explains how to use bulbs, herbaceous perennials and annuals to decorate these spaces with glorious flowers and colour. Practical and easy to navigate, but also beautifully designed and featuring inspiring images of gardens from both Australia and overseas, 'The Gardenist' will empower you to create an irresistible outdoor space that is great to look at and magical to be in.
