Reviews

'For those of us who appreciate visits to woodland gardens, this large-format book will become our bible.....the high quality photographs... transport you round the world, looking at remarkable gardens....'  Jim Gardiner, RHS Garden, June 2018


This magnificent book is a distillation of 40 years of Kenneth Cox's experience of woodland gardens and gardening.....  Written with firm convictions and good humour, spiced with literary quotations... Comprehensive and totally original, this is an eminently readable book by a man who is utterly immersed in his subject.  I think it will be recognised as being one of the definitive works on a gardening genre, much as Robinson's The English Flower Garden and Farrer's The English Rock Garden were and should inform a generation or two of woodland gardeners and tree planters.

 

 

'Kenneth Cox’s latest tome Woodland Gardening is a significant Scottish horticultural publication which brings the art of woodland gardening to life.

Cox’s book provides an invaluable insight into the cultivation and management of woodland gardens for landowners, for those looking to invest in land, and for gardening enthusiasts alike.

His exposition on woodland gardening is commendably comprehensive, with information ranging from its characteristics to the complex art of how to design a woodland garden, including how to choose a site, the climate and soil, the size and timescale, and the challenges you are likely to face.

In the end, much like the care required for a woodland garden, the book reveals a labour of love that explores the past, present and future of these charming gardens.' 4 STARS

Kenneth Cox: Woodland Gardening.
2018. Glendoick Publishing,

394 S., in engl. Sprache, 560 Farb- und 15 SW-Abbildungen, ISBN 978-1-5272-1787-4; 40 ₤ oder ca. 50 € Zweifellos ein Buch von Gewicht: 2,1 kg schwer und mit fast 400 Seiten und 575 Abbildungen nicht nur inhaltlich, sondern auch visuell ein Schwergewicht. Kenneth Cox ist überraschenderweise der erste, der ein Buch zu diesem speziellen Stil der Gartengestaltung veröffentlicht. Entstanden ist der »woodland garden« im 18. Jh. in England. Ihn kennzeichnen drei Pflanzenebenen (Baum-, Strauch- und Staudenschicht) und meist frische, saure Böden. Rhododendron, Magnolien, Kamelien und säureliebende Pflanzen
– so auch der Untertitel des Buches – spielen entsprechend im »woodland
garden« eine herausragende Rolle und werden daher auch ausgiebig gewürdigt
bzw. bebildert. Nach einer Definition von »woodland gardening« schlägt der Autor in fünf großen Abschnitten den weiten Bogen von der Geschichte dieser Gartenform über das Design eines »woodland gardens«, den praktischen Aspekten wie Boden, Klima, Unterhaltung und Krankheiten, den geeigneten Pflanzen bis hin zu »The Greatest Woodland Gardens«. Das Buch ist damit vieles in einem. Es ist eine Art Reiseführer zu den schönsten Beispielgärten
in Europa (neben vielen Anlagen aus England, Wales, Irland und Schottland
wird erfreulicherweise auch der Rhododendron- Park Bremen lobend erwähnt),
Nordamerika, Australien, Neuseeland und Japan, aber auch ein Geschichtsbuch,
in dem von Pflanzenjägern, Züchtern und Gartenschöpfern erzählt wird.
»Woodland Gardening« ist ein Ratgeber für das Gärtnern mit den genannten
pflanzlichen Hauptakteuren und zugleich Inspiration für den eigenen Garten. Vorschlagslisten für geeignete Magnolien-, Rhododendron- und Kamelien-Arten und -Sorten sind ebenso enthalten w Lieblingsthemen des Autors, die Kombination von Blütenfarben.  Gerade wegen der vielen Bilder, aber
auch angesichts der kompetent geschriebenen, detailreichen Aufarbeitung des
Themas und der zahlreichen wertvollen Ratschläge ist das Buch absolut lesenswert. Und, es macht definitiv Lust auf eine Weltreise! Zu bestellen ist »Woodland Gardening« ausschließlich direkt bei der Baumschule
Glendoick . Unter www.glendoick.com finden sich alle weiteren Informationen. Die Investition lohnt sich!
