This beautiful new book from Kenneth Cox is his latest must-read guide for gardeners who enjoy working with nature in all her glory. As well hundreds of full colour photographs documenting the best woodland gardens across the globe, you will also hear best practice ideas from the world’s best woodland gardeners.
Full colour book published April 2018. Please note that this book weighs over 2kg so is quite expensive to post. It costs the same to post 1 copy as 4 copies, so if possible try to club together to order multiple copies.
