Cultivating Chaos reveals how gardeners can make their own natural landscape gardens using self-seeding plants. The authors showcase iconic gardens such as Great Dixter, Waltham Place and Derek Jarman's garden at Dungeness where self-seeders have been managed to create informal but disciplined garden spaces. They provide extensive information on how to improve soil to maximise germination of these naturally vigorous plants and recommend selfseeders for different sites and conditions.
