Review:

How often have you bought longed-for plants and put them into your garden and having spent time, effort and money, how often have you been disappointed with the result? Gardeners the world over all have the same problem: how to include all their favourite plants in a space too small to contain them This book would appear to be the answer to the dilemma, suggesting problems can be overcome by making basic decisions when choosing planting companions. Gill Billington is an award-winning garden designer, gardening judge, lecturer and successful writer. This is all clearly evident in her book, in that she describes many dazzling plant associations and looks at all differing aspects of shape and form, texture, pattern and colour (the latter being particularly vibrant) almost from an artist's point of view. On the other hand, the rest of the book deals with plants which are naturally compatible--those which enjoy the same growing conditions--and includes discussions on how size, habit and growth rate can influence choice.

Throughout, the book is lavishly illustrated with photographs by the internationally renowned, three-times Garden Photographer of the Year, Clive Nichols, whose own gardening books have also received worldwide acclaim. This is a very informative and practical book which is easy to read, but at the same time visually stunning--a book to read and consult again and again and again and again... --Susan Naylor
