Summary 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.
