From the Publisher:

When faced with the overwhelming number of plants on offer at nurseries and in catalogs, it can be daunting to choose the ones that are right for your garden. Top 100 Star Plants is not a dry catalog of plants—instead of presenting readers with a bafþing series of lists, Rachel de Thame narrows the field, making the book both enjoyable to read and practical to use. There are 15 categories in all—everything from Ornamental Herbs and Winter Flowering Shrubs to Plants for a Tropical Effect. Each section features a short introduction to the topic, followed by plant recommendations—with six to twelve in each category, the reader has plenty of choice without being overwhelmed. Each plant description is written in a friendly, yet informative style and includes invaluable gardening tips. Featuring 110 gorgeous color photos, Top 100 Star Plants is an essential companion for all gardeners.

Review:

A beginner gardener can get very confused with today's vast array of shrubs, trees, climbers and flower plants. Even an experienced plant-lover is occasionally flummoxed with the never-ending stream of new varieties and cultivars offered in the garden centres. BBC's new star gardener, Rachel de Thame, steps into the breach with this fully illustrated, beautifully photographed selection of her top 100 star plants - plants that no garden should be without, plants for every situation from sun to shade, trees and shrubs for gardens small and large, the currently popular billowy grasses and the ephemeral annuals. All are discussed in a chatty, over-the-garden-fence style, down-to-earth and no-nonsense, making this a user-friendly guide to the best plants currently on offer to gardeners. - Lucy Watson
