Publisher Comments:

The Complete Gardener is the most comprehensive, practical and creative book yet produced for the gardening enthusiast. Whether you are starting from scratch, remodeling an existing garden, enhancing your home with hanging baskets and window boxes or planning a focal point for a favorite room, this is the book for you. It is both practical manual and creative source-book—a unique blend of the art and science of gardening.

In PART 1 John Brookes offers the outdoor gardener a wealth of information about planning, building, planting, and maintaining every conceivable type of garden—from country garden to city rooftop; from rock gardens and patios to pools and woodland glades.

For the indoor gardener and creative homeowner, PART 2 is both a comprehensive guide to choosing, growing and caring for indoor plants, and a source-book of stylish ideas for arranging flowers, grouping plants and planning decorative room schemes. Starting with a stunning photographic guide to the color, texture, size and shape of plants, the author demonstrates and explains all the basic principles of successful plant display-from choosing containers and coordinating colors to constructing decorative features that will enhance any room, staircase or open space and bring the special, magical effect of the garden right into your home.

Synopsis:
