Water is usually a gardener's friend, bringing lush plant growth and the sensory delights of fountains, streams, and ponds. But even gardeners can have too much of a good thing, and excess water can be hostile to plant life. Fortunately, John Simmons comes to the rescue with the definitive guide to managing a variety of wet garden sites. "Managing the Wet Garden" dares gardeners to consider excess water an opportunity to cultivate an unexpectedly large and unique range of plants. Natural wetlands - water meadows, marshlands, and riverbanks - provide inspiration for practical water management, plant selection, and aesthetic considerations.In Part One, Simmons provides readers with practical tips on how to recognize and manage a wet site. Part Two includes a detailed directory of water tolerant plants, including ferns, conifers, trees, shrubs, climbers, herbaceous plants, and bulbs. Twenty years in preparation, "Managing the Wet Garden" will inspire readers to not only accept the challenge of too much water, but to appreciate the ample rewards.
