The cottage garden by Christopher Lloyd( Book )
13 editions published between 1990 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 683 libraries worldwide
Christopher Lloyd's Garden Flowers is an extensive and opinionated summary of a lifetime's gardening experience. He sets the stage by explaining what perennials are and what their particular advantage is in the garden, a wonderful first glimpse at his design theories. The introduction continues with inspirational, practical, and blunt ("A plant has no business to be dull in company -- same with humans.") advice on planning and planting a garden. After a dig at botanists' penchant for renaming families, he leaps directly into his assessment of Acanthus in the course of his alphabetical journey to Zigadenus. Lloyd touches on large and small genuses, both common and obscure. He describes the height and habit of the plants, garden situations in which they have worked well for him, and any pests or diseases that they are particularly susceptible to. The photos demonstrate the imaginative combinations Lloyd has described and the true versatility of perennials

"In this gardening classic the forever adventurous Christopher Lloyd takes us on a tour through the garden, stopping to lecture here, to exhort there, to overturn the old and accepted when his experience prompts him. He ponders, suggests, explains, ruminates, always delighting the reader with the sharpness of his observations and the eloquence of his prose. For Christopher Lloyd gardening is nothing if not fun, and he makes it equally enjoyable for his readers" --Publisher's description
Meadows by Christopher Lloyd( Book )
10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and German and held by 421 libraries worldwide
"To see an unimproved meadow in bloom is a great delight - the community of flowers and grasses is rich and colourful as are the butterflies, moths and other fauna that go with it. No wonder, then, with the biodiversity of our countryside fast disappearing, that meadow gardening has become fashionable and a book on the subject is so timely." "No one could tackle the subject of wild gardening in grass like Christopher Lloyd, whose celebrated garden at Great Dixter includes the flower-studded lawns and orchards admired by countless visitors and television viewers. In Meadows, he 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."--Jacket

All flowering plants, observes the noted horticulturist Christopher Lloyd, have limited blossoming seasons, which are often quite short. And many of the plants with the most beautiful blooms have the dullest or least attractive leaves. Therefore the character of a garden depends to a large degree on foliage plants - everything from trees to grasses - that last throughout the summer, and sometimes throughout th eyear, and that are grown primarily for their foliage
