Re: Christopher Lloyd

Basic, yes.   Afraid most of us do, at sometime, buy plants and then try to 
create the environment they prefer.    It is not a new book but I was hoping to 
read some magically formula for creating the perfect garden.
     Doug Hoerr, who suggested the book, worked for Adrian Bloom & Beth 
Chatto in their gardens.   He said gardening in England is gardening with near 
perfect conditions.   The story of Dougs career was interesting.   He started his 
career in his grandfathers landscaping buisness.   He was doing okay but 
decided he was not going to gain fame competing with 20 cousins also in the 
business so wrote A. Bloom asking to work as his gardener just for the experience.   
Adrain hired him but did give him $2 @ hr.   He said it wasn't enough to pay 
for his film.   He also worked for Chatto and another knnown name which I don't 
recall before returning to Chicago and his own business.   He stated the 
midwest is the most difficult location for gardening due to Mother Natures 
behavior.   I have you been to Chicago to see his gardens in the city?
