A guide to using color in the garden that explores how to achieve the effect you require, whether you want an instant splash of brilliant seasonal color, or a border with subtle year-round appeal. It discusses ways to put color together, and demonstrates the power of color to change the sense of space, to suggest coolness and warmth and to evoke different moods. The basis of creating harmonizing and contrasting schemes is explained and illustrated with examples. All the major schemes are supported by line drawings giving full planting details. Illustrated plant directories, arranged by color and flowering season, provide cultivation details for over 850 plants, enabling you to assemble the right plants for your chosen scheme, and to carry that scheme throughout the year.

Review:

He talks with reassuring simplicity on such basic yet essential matters as light saturation, tones and colour distribution, so that newcomers to gardening, as well as old hands, will find themselves understanding the huge and potentially complex subject of colour in the garden. This is a constructive book, and beautiful, too Hortus as well thought out and thorough as it is possible such a book to be ... but of course, it is the big photographs in the book that make it special. And not just because some of them are captivatingly beautiful, but because they are all organically related to the text Oldie
