A garden and landscape designer takes the green-fingered reader through her own garden maintenance and seasonally-adjusted projects over the course of a year

This exceptional book immerses the reader in the world of gardens and plants. Jacqueline van de Kloet takes us on a tour of the garden in 12 chapters and shows us what makes a garden special and beautiful, month after month. She explains what has to be done throughout the year, shows us her favorite plants and gives us a glimpse into her many national and international projects. Jacqueline talks enthusiastically about her life as a garden and landscape designer and about her own little piece of paradise. The many photos are a source of inspiration and bear witness to this plantswoman's love for everything that blossoms and flourishes. The 12 recurring fixed views read as a visual narrative showing how the garden develops through the year. This is the perfect book for every garden enthusiast.


"an elegant, extraordinarily photogenic look."— Booklist

Author Biography

Jacqueline van der Kloet is a garden and landscape designer with a particular passion for plant combinations, especially for perennials and bulbs—a specialism which has led to commissions in the Netherlands for a.o. Keukenhof and Artis Zoo, and international collaboration on large projects such as World Expo in Shanghai, plant schemes in Battery Park NY, and Lurie Garden in Chicago. Recent commissions have taken her to the UK and Japan.
