Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you're looking for the right plant for a particular place or purpose, Plant Solutions is an invaluable resource. Whether you have a shady spot, alkaline soil, or a boggy area; you're looking for fall color, cut flowers, or ground cover; or need to consider pollution tolerance or allergies, the extensive plant suggestions in this thorough directory will help you make the right choices.

Each entry has a photograph, a clear description including desirable varieties, a summary of cultivation requirements, planting ideas, and suggestions for companion plants. Cross references to other plants in the book enable gardeners to build up a palette of plants to suit their needs. Fully annotated illustrations of planting schemes and color-coded tabs for quick reference make for an inspirational and practical companion for gardeners and designers.

Book News Annotation:

This versatile volume presents a wealth of information and ideas in an easy-to-use format. A perfect resource for garden planning, the plants are organized by soil type and planting condition, with entries for three plants per page in a felicitous format of color photo beside the entry, which conveys in a clear but economical way a description and list of companion plants, and lists the plant's soil preference, aspect, season of interest, and height and spread. Shrubs, annuals, perennials, trees, bulbs, grasses, plants for dry soil, wet soil, bad soil, exposed sites, etc. are among the categories. Double-page "focus on..." sections devoted to a particular plant are included throughout. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
