Contents Introduction : what is sharp gardening? -- Exotic inspiration : the development of the sharp style from the subtropical gardens of the past -- Swords and lances : architectural foliage plants to create the backbone of the design -- Spiky rosettes : more foliage plants to add contrast and complete the skeletal framework -- Spiky flowers, spires and straps : three kinds of flowering perennials to embroider the look -- Fluffy spikes : floating, feathery grasses to add the finishing touch.
Summary "By describing the range of sharp plants and gardens that incorporate them successfully - all showcased in Jerry Harpur's photographs - and by explaining how to choose plants that suit you, give them the right growing conditions and use them in a cohesive design, Christopher Holliday inspires and empowers you to create your own sharp look."--Jacket.
