To visit Chanticleer is to step into a world of beauty and creativity that few other gardens can match. Each of its many areas - including formal borders, woodland glades, and a fantasy garden planted among ruins - offers a unique embodiment of colour, texture, and form. The sources of this distinctive blend of inspiration and practical craft are at the heart of The Art of Gardening. In these pages, you'll learn techniques specific to different conditions and plant palettes; how to use hardscape materials in a fresh way; and how to achieve the perfect union between plant and site. And Rob Cardillo's exquisite photographs of exciting combinations will be sure to stimulate your own creativity. Whether you're already under Chanticleer's spell or have yet to visit, The Art of Gardening will enable you to bring the special magic that pervades this most artful of gardens into your own home landscape.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In this delightful book, the staff gardeners are full of advice--on using small evergreens for screens, deploying bursts of color, choosing plants for dry shade--that that will be useful in any size garden, even one where you're the only gardener on staff." --The New York Times

"Flipping through the pages of The Art of Gardening, it is abundantly clear why people visit Chanticleer, and why this book has had so much wonderful press already. . . .

From landscape shots to beauty shots of especially photographic cultivars, each page is a delight." --NYBG's Plant Talk
