Here is a guide for every gardener who wrongly believes that shady gardens are, by their very nature, dark, dull and uninteresting. No doubt this does apply to some, but the fault lies more certainly in the choice of plants, for there are numerous shade-loving plants that will brighten up the bleakest of comers. Shade in the garden is all too often seen as a problem. This concise, well-illustrated book goes a long way to proving that it can become one of the garden's assets.
