First published in 1870, "The Wild Garden" challenged the prevailing garden style of the day and advocated a naturalistic style, in which hardy plants, both native and exotic, are arranged in groupings that mimic wild landscapes. Thanks to Robinson s passionate advocacy, the naturalistic style triumphed, andRobinson's urgent message continues to resonate today.For this newly designed edition, Rick Darke has written an introductory essay that not only underscores Robinson s importance in the evolution of garden design and ecology, but also explains his relevance for today s gardeners, designers, and landscape professionals. The book contains over 100 stunning photographs taken by Darke, including images of Gravetye and of modern wild gardens."
