Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clematis are loved for the abundance and color of their blooms but are not so well known for their versatility. Although they are typically and successfully used as climbers, they can be grown almost anywhere under most conditions. This essential guide introduces the genus in all its glory to the novice gardener and extends the knowledge of the more experienced. As well as explaining how to care for clematis, it inspires gardeners to recognize the vast range of clematis available today and the many different ways there are go grow them.

Synopsis:

Clematis are amongst the most versatile of all garden flowers and can be grown in a number of different ways and for a number of different purposes—as climbers and trailers for trellises, walls, and even through trees; as low growing shrubs for ground cover; and for growing in containers on the patio. This guide covers everything the beginner may need for the best and most colorful results.

About the Author

Ruth Gooch has been involved with clematis since childhood when she was captivated by the glorious double-flowered "Vyvyan Pennell" in her parents' garden. She began Thorncroft Clematis Nursery from the hobby she shared with her parents and, with their help, opened for retail sales in 1989. The nursery has since won multiple gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show.
