Flower Gardens Summary

Flower Gardens by Penelope Hobhouse

Flower Gardens is a personal treatise by one of England's foremost garden writers, a guide to choosing the best flowering plants for any garden and arranging them harmoniously in their setting.

Penelope Hobhouse begins by discussing flower qualities - colour form, habit season and scent -in relation to the whole plant and its contribution to the garden. Different flower garden styles are discussed in subsequent chapters - from natural gardening, through classic flower borders and beds, to more manicured styles of elegant formality. Delightful photographs of featured gardens demonstrate each of these themes.

The plant catalogue includes more than 700 flowering plants, with detailed information on how and where to use them in garden composition.
