The Gardener's Book of Colour Summary

The Gardener's Book of Colour by Andrew Lawson

A guide to using colour in the garden that explores how to achieve the effect you require, whether you want an instant splash of brilliant seasonal colour, or a border with subtle year-round appeal. It discusses ways to put colour together, and demonstrates the power of colour 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 colour 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.
