The Crafted Garden is the second book by exceptional new talent, Louise Curley, who shares her passion for natural garden craft with a wider audience. These fifty novel and attractive projects and techniques will give everyone a chance to feel clever about their creativity, as they transform twigs, sprigs, berries and stems into baubles, bunches, decorations and works of art. These are projects for indoors and out, arranged by the season, with galleries of projects to inspire, step by steps projects to copy and technique masterclasses to help readers develop their own skills.

The Crafted Garden is about bringing the outdoors in and being inspired by nature. It's about recapturing the joy of making daisy chains, of nature tables of foraged finds as an antidote to modern life.

This book relies on home-grown and foraged plant material to open up the imagination and capture seasonality, whether that's to add a touch of individuality to a dinner party or for making the perfect housewarming gift. Reuse, recycle recreate are the ideas behind each project.

LOUISE CURLEY has a growing audience through her widely read blog, https://wellywoman.wordpress.com and features in Gardeners' World, Grow Your Own, Garden Answers and the Guardian. Her first book, The Cut Flower Patch, has received many plaudits, been translated across Europe, and this second combination of Louise's inspiration and Jason Ingram's photography makes a compelling and giftable package. Crafting projects using garden gatherings is an increasingly popular area of interest, as people extend from grow-your-own to make-your-own. The green credentials of this book, as with The Cut Flower Patch, will be self-evident.
