Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Magical planting suggestions from today's most compelling garden writer. Herbaceous perennials are the star performers in the garden. But to create maximum impact they need the right partners, and knowing which plant to put with which is an art that often eludes even the most knowledgeable of gardeners. Here, Anna Pavord helps to solve this tantalizing problem by suggesting 60 plants that she feels deserve a place in every garden — her star plants — and to accompany them, two ideal partners. She shows, season by season, how to create irresistible planting associations that juxtapose texture, shape, color, and scent. In these small-scale recipes she uses perennials, annuals, and bulbs that either perform simultaneously or dovetail to provide interest for most of the year. To extend the options, she also gives scores of alternatives for each combination. Stunning photographs and Anna's unique ability to awaken us to the delights and idiosyncrasies of these, her favorite plants, work together to provide a marvelous source of planting ideas. These can be visited time and time again, whether we want merely to fill one small gap, transform an awkward corner, or start a whole new border from scratch.

Synopsis:

Star plants and their companions axe showcased in hundreds of imaginative combinations.

About the Author

The Tulip, the result of Anna Pavord's lifelong passion for this particular bulb, won her worldwide acclaim and almost started a second bout of tulip mania. Indeed her enthusiasm for plants, combined with her ability to evoke in words their many quirks and charms, make her one of the most entertaining yet informative of garden writers. Anna has written many highly successful books, including The Border Book and New Kitchen Garden, both published by Dorling Kindersley. In the UK, she writes regularly for the magazine Gardens Illustrated, where she is also associate editor, and contributes a weekly column to The Independent newspaper. She is a frequent radio broadcaster and has also presented her own TV series about gardening. Anna is an avid traveler, gleaning information about plants in many corners of the world. Back home in Dorset, England, she uses her large garden — around an old rectory — as a source of inspiration and a place where she can constantly experiment with new associations of flowers and foliage.
