  • In 'Managing the Wet garden', John Simmons has produced a useful guide to managing a variety of wet garden sites. The book dares gardeners to consider excess water as 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.
