The vertical garden : from nature to the city by Patrick Blanc( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The secrets of plants that cling, grip, and climb, from the inventor of the vertical garden. Patrick Blanc, an artist with a green thumb, has created dozens of his admired botanical tapestries in public and private spaces around the world. In this oversize, all-color book, he explains how to create plant walls using more than one thousand plants, drawing on his observation of natural milieus, his technique of growing on vertical surfaces, his savoir faire, and his passion for plants.--From publisher description
Etre plante à l'ombre des forêts tropicales by Patrick Blanc( Book )

Vivre avec seulement le centième de l'intensité lumineuse reçue par les couronnes des grands arbres, tel est le défi auquel doivent faire face les plantes de sous-bois. Loin de les anéantir, cette faible énergie est à l'origine d'une prolifération des inventions structurales et comportementales, qui aboutissent ainsi à un exceptionnel faisceau de stratégies adaptives pour ces plantes herbacées et arbustives qui représentent le tiers des espèces des forêts tropicales

2 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a recipe book for gardeners, from Patrick Blanc's innovative Green Wall to new techniques for domestic gardens. Until recently the idea of vertical gardening was limited to growing climbing plants on walls and trellises, but it has been completely transformed in recent years through the impetus of Patrick Blanc, who invented the concept of the Vertical Garden, also known as the Mur Végétal, or Green Wall. Since then, many new developments have appeared. These are all techniques that Noémie Vialard presents in this book, paying particular attention to her friend Patrick Blanc?s concept and featuring the wall of aromatic plants he designed especially for her. Step-by-step photographs guide you through the different stages in the development of a wall like this for personal enjoyment
