This book takes inspiration from Brandywine Cottage in Pennsylvania, a garden famous for its gorgeous and ever-changing display of plants. This non-stop parade of colour is created by "layering" - interplanting many different species in the same area so that as one plant passes its peak, another takes over.

The book is organized by seasons, and lay out how the author planned and managed the garden. I sometimes feel it is like a garden journal, wordy and lengthy, but I did explore many ideas and built a concept of how a nature layered garden is built. A quite enjoyable book and many can be applied here in PNW.

New homeowners should check this book out just for the inspirational before-and-after photos of the author's gardens. Really, any gardener who loves informal flowering borders will find much to admire here. Brandywine Cottage is in Pennsylvania, but many of the featured plants thrive in the Pacific Northwest.
