My philosophy to a tee...



"Instead of the determination to create a single soil type that is worth while and probably essential if you want to grow vegetables, there is an argument, if you want to grow ornamental plants, for being more relaxed about your soil and going with the flow. If you have sandy soil, embrace it, and grow plants from all over the globe that love just such soils; after all, some of the best wild-flower displays in the world are growing in seemingly nothing but sand. Would it not be good if, instead of the costly and back-breaking efforts required to transform our stony, well-drained banks into something they are not, we could just go along to our garden centres and nurseries, or read our reference books, and find out about all the wonderful plants that grow in very similar conditions in the wild? Learning directly from nature in this instance would be of really practical help for all gardeners, irrespective of whether they want a more natural-looking garden or not."

Keith Wiley, On the Wild Side: Experiments in New Naturalism, Timber Press, 2004. p. 26.


Wiley's aim is "freeing your own creative inner spirit from the straitjacket of horticultural tradition"
