Hummelo – near the village of the same name in Gelderland in the eastern Netherlands – is visited by thousands of gardeners seeking inspiration each year. It is Piet Oudolf's home, his personal garden laboratory, a former nursery run by his wife Anja, and the place where he first tested new designs and created the new varieties of perennials that are now widely available. Oudolf has long been at the forefront of an ecological movement in garden design, which eschews short-lived annuals in favor of perennials that can be appreciated for both structure and blooms in every season. This book tells the story of how his family's garden has evolved over the past three decades and includes short essays highlighting important techniques, bio-diverse plantings and others at the forefront of landscape design.
