Synopsis

Creating a Garden of the Senses Simple Ways to Use Fragrance, Sound, Texture, Taste and Visual Drama in the Garden by Jenny Hendy

Create a harmonious garden style all the year round with innovative use of colour and pattern. Experience the soothing sounds of birdsong, the hum of insects, the rustle of leaves and the gentle trickle of water in the garden. Tempt your palate with sweet and edible flowers, plump summer fruits, delicious gourmet vegetables and fragrant herbs. Incorporate soft, velvety-textured plants and shrubs that cry out to be touched, and tactile floor surfaces that invite bare feet. Plant heady-scented roses, fragrant climbers and aromatic bulbs, annuals, herbs and shrubs to make your own pleasure garden. This beautiful book will show you how to add sensory elements into the garden, whether planting a fragrant honeysuckle near a window, adding a gently flowing water feature to attract wildlife, or planning beautiful borders to create romantic atmosphere or glorious year-round colour. Imagine the captivating scent of herbs and flowers, feast your eyes on a sunny summer border, hear the busy hum of bees, brush past soft foliage and taste sweet fruit freshly picked. A garden can incorporate all these elements whatever its aspect or size. With practical planting suggestions and delightful, evocative photographs of achievable garden schemes, Creating a Garden of the Senses will inspire you to make your garden a sensory paradise.
