Assembling Natural Companions


The always stylish and inspiring Ken Druse has just published a new book titled Natural Companions: The Garden Lover's Guide to Plant Combinations.  In order to illustrate these happy relationships, Druse collaborated with photographer Ellen Hoverkamp, who turned groups of plants working together at particular moments in particular gardens into art.

Here is Ellen at work:


  1. One of my favorite things about gardening is finding the perfect plant combinations. Generally I walk through the garden and pick a few flowers to see what looks nice together and is blooming at the same time. Or look over my photos of the garden on a particular day.

    Ken’s books are always beautiful I’ll have to check this one out.

  2. I have known Ellen for many years and have followed her work as she developed her technique. She is an amazing woman. When you see this book in person, you will know how valuable it is to inspire people. If you don’t own it, go out and buy it NOW. It is unlike any book ever done.
