Many of the subjects are illustrated in superb color photographs. Coded information at the head of each entry enables gardeners to make the best choices when confronted with the bewildering array of plants on offer.Whether your garden is a patio of a few square metres or several hectares on a terraced hillside, you will find a wealth of ideas for colorful and interesting plants and a variety of garden designs.
