Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Perennials can form a key part of a garden's structure and are dynamic and colorful plants whose forms and textures can be used to alter moods and influence the way we respond to and use a garden. The first section of this book shows how to create garden schemes with perennials, and the second section looks at the best perennials for year-round planting and color effect. A third section considers how to use perennials in different styles of garden. The book is completed by a list of perennials for special purposes, and an A-Z directory with practical tips on all the plants included in the earlier chapters.

Synopsis:

This useful book instructs gardeners in all aspects of designing with perennials, from color schemes to matching different styles of gardens. Full color.
