Synopses & Reviews
One of the most creative gardening guides on the market Years of experience answering questions on what to grow in problem sites -- plus an impressive career at the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum and plenty of practice in his own garden -- make Roy Lancaster one of the best-qualified writers to advise on which plants to grow where. Perfect Plant Perfect Place is an invaluable, updated compilation of Roy's best-selling titles What Plant Where, What Perennial Where, and What Houseplant Where. It recommends plants for every situation, both in the garden and in the home. In each section, such as Soil & Exposure, Location, Shrubs, and Perennials, he takes different sites or conditions and offers an inspired selection of suitable plants. He also considers desired effects -- perhaps planting to attract butterflies, or for autumn colors -- and lists his choice for achieving these. Plant suggestions are illustrated with magnificent color photographs, supported by notes on the plant's special features and size, hardiness, and light and soil requirements -- in short, all the facts you need to guarantee the perfect choice.
Featuring plants for all indoor and outdoor situations, from sunny rooms to shady corners to exposed coastal gardens, Perfect Plant, Perfect Place gives practical suggestions for problem situations and expert advice on caring for your plants all year round.
