The Gardener's Book of Colour by Andrew Lawson
This guide takes colour way beyond the existing guides for gardeners. It adds new dimensions to the art of gardening, and shows the gardener how to put plants together to make personal and effective combinations. It explores not only single-colour plantings, but also the wide range of colour associations available to the gardener for "painting" pictures with plants.;The book caters for every taste and every mood, exploring soothing gardens based on varying hues of greens, restrained palettes limited to a narrow range of colour harmonies, as well as striking contrasts creating a riot of colour. It includes extensive lists of the most useful plants for colour-rich schemes with full cultivation notes. Artwork showing full planting details enables gardeners to put their ideas into practice.;Andrew Lawson is the photographer for Rosemary Verey's "Good Planting" and "The Garden in Winter", Stephen Lacey's "Scent Your Garden", HRH The Prince of Wales's "Highgrove, Portrait of an Estate" and "Penelope Hobhouse On Gardening". He is the author of "Performance Plants".
