"Alan Toogood's expert advice shows you how to make the most of whatever shelter your garden may offer: dry, shady beds beneath high hedges can provide an ideal home of all sorts of shrubs; hot sunny walls are the perfect place to grow figs, grapes and even peaches. He shows you how to provide shelter and explains the advantages and disadvantages of different types-hedges, brick walls and openwork screens, which can all be used to hide ugly views or to create secret, scented areas within a more open-plan garden. Full of delightful and original ideas and John Glover's superb, specially commissioned photography, The Sheltered Garden will appeal to everyone who enjoys outdoor living. Whether you garden is large or small, rolling acres or a tiny patio, Alan Toogood will help you to explore its full potential."; 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall
