Meadows Summary

Meadows by Christopher Lloyd

Everything the keen gardener needs to know about the creation and management of meadows. At some point in their life, everyone has caught sight of a breathtaking meadow of grasses and wildflowers. The amazing community created by flowers and grasses, butterflies, grasshoppers and other fauna is rich and colourful. No wonder then, with the biodiversity of our countryside fast disappearing, that meadow gardening has become fashionable again. In this definitive guide, Christopher Lloyd covers all aspects of the topic - from the romantic concept of the Swiss Alpine meadow and the man-made prairies of the USA to Dutch and German approaches to naturalistic plantings and the wildflowers of South Africa. Full of practical information, Lloyd explores the development and management of established meadow areas, ways of starting from scratch in a garden setting and the hundreds of beautiful grasses, bulbs and colourful perennials that thrive in different conditions. Meadows is packed with all the information necessary for creating and maintaining your meadow.

About Christopher Lloyd

Christopher Lloyd still lives in the 15th century manor house in which he was born, at Great Dixter in Sussex, where he has gained a lifetime of experience and expertise in all areas of gardening, including the management of meadows. In 1963, he started writing for Country Life and has not missed an issue since. He also writes for The Guardian and Horticulture in the US, and has written many books including Christopher Lloyd's Garden Flowers. In 1979 the RHS honoured him with the Victoria Medal of Honour, and he received the OBE for services to horticulture in the 2000 New Year's Honours list.
