The Wild Garden, first published in 1870, issued a forceful challenge to the prevailing garden style of the day and advocated a naturalistic style, in which hardy plants, both native and exotic, are arranged in groupings that mimic wild landscapes.

It would be a mistake, however, to think of The Wild Garden as merely of historical interest. For this newly designed edition, Rick Darke has written an introductory essay that not only underscores Robinson’s importance in the evolution of garden design and ecology, but also explains his relevance for today’s gardeners, designers, and landscape professionals. In addition, the book contains 100 photographs taken by Darke, including images of Gravetye and of modern wild gardens.
