Garden Artistry – Secrets of Designing and Planting a Small Garden

Helen Dillon

Most gardeners long to have a colourful assortment of bulbs, herbaceous perennials, trees, shrubs and annuals but making these plants work together successfully can often be difficult. Helen Dillon provides the solution to such a daunting task by offering sensible tactics for establishing artistic order. Drawing from the challenges and triumphs she faced creating her impressive town house garden in Dublin, Dillon offers a personal, intimate, and passionate account of the pleasures of gardening in small and sometimes difficult spaces. One of Ireland’s great gardeners and a firm favourite on the Carlow Garden Festival programme, Helen’s entertaining and witty style will appeal to both the novice and more experienced gardener.
