Water has featured prominently in garden designs for thousands of years and its appeal to the senses still attracts the imagination of gardeners. Although water gardening need not be time-consuming, costly or complicated, ponds and other water features do need careful planning. This updated edition of "The Master Book of the Water Garden" is a guide to this task, detailing the wide range of options available to a water gardener. The book is comprehensively written, with easy-to-follow, accessible advice, detailed instructions and step-by-step illustrations. The guide features more than 150 illustrated plant profiles, which detail the requirements for aquatic plants. Its clear advice should enable the reader to select not only plants but also fish for the water garden.
