About the Author

Marina Christopher is an enthusiastic and very successful nursery owner, with a following of committed gardeners including such luminaries as Piet Oudolf and Dan Pearson. She has a degree in botany and marine biology from the University of North Wales and did postgraduate research at Oxford before working at Fireside Nursery, specializing in wildflowers and plants that attract wildlife, and subsequently at Green Farm Plants, a specialist nursery that focuses mainly on late summer-flowering perennials and grasses. She now runs a herbaceous perennial nursery, Phoenix Plants, which concentrates on unusual and interesting cultivars and varieties. She also teaches courses and workshops on the cultivation of perennials. Marina is passionate not only about plants, but also nature, and she aims to promote eco-friendly attitudes among today's gardeners.
