Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Make your next trip to the garden center a pleasure. Rely on the expertise and authority of the American Horticultural Society to choose plants that are specifically suited to the needs of your garden. For quick and easy reference, plants are listed under a range of specific sites and soils, from damp, shady sports to exposed situations, and for a range of uses from attracting wildlife to choosing the best climbers for pergolas. With full-color photographs and growing information for more than 1,000 tried-and-tested plants this is the perfect pocket-sized guide for trips to the garden center and nursery.

Book News Annotation:

Small in size (4x5.5<">), but big on color, this useful guide identifies plants for specific soils, microclimates (e.g. damp sites in shade, south- and west-facing walls), coastal gardens, hedges, groundcover, walls and paving, water gardens, containers, shape and structure, wildlife gardens, and even for cutting and drying. Each plant profile includes a color photo, information about zone and preferences/tolerances, and a paragraph description.
