Synopsis:

A comprehensive and practical guide -- essential.

Even the experienced gardener can be stumped when considering which plants to put where. Confidence in working with plant combinations can mean the difference between a mediocre garden and one that sings. The Encyclopedia of Planting Combinations is the perfect tool to help gardeners create a stunning garden. Rich with inspiration and practical advice, the expanded and updated edition includes:

  • An 18-page analysis on combining plants according to location, soil, climate and seasons
  • An 18-page analysis of planting styles, with instructions on how to re-create many of the combinations shown in the book -- perennials, meadow planting, matrix planting, grasses and more
  • 12 pages on the leading innovators in combination planting, including Piet Oudolf, Penelope Hobhouse and Beth Chatto
  • An additional 300 color photographs
  • Garden designers' signature combinations -- and why they work
  • An updated easy-to-use layout that features more prominent at-a-glance symbols and spotlights plant characteristics and cultivation requirements.

This comprehensive directory and cultivation guide provides 4,000 combinations for beautiful and successful plantings, with entries fully cross-referenced. With authoritative and imaginative text, superb photographs and thousands of planting combinations, the Encyclopedia of Planting Combinations is ideal for gardeners at all experience levels.
