Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Questions of what to plant where tax many a gardener – novices especially. What plants will look good with each other? How can you make a planting that will be attractive for more than a few weeks of the year? What can you plant in a ‘difficult’ spot? This book completely removes the pressure of making such decisions. It makes successful planting easy, by providing simple planting recipes for a variety of garden situations. The authors recommend perfect plants for different places – from a hot sunny south-facing corner to a dry dark shady area – and show you how to combine them into beautiful schemes. For each situation the planting is presented as a recipe, with a list of what plants you need and how many of each to order. Colour photographs illustrate the individual plants. A planting plan shows the layout of the planting and the positioning of the plants. Individual descriptions of each plant describe its characteristics, such as, size and flowering time, and its particular requirements. There are also lists of optional additional plantings to enhance the planting at different times of the year. Each recipe comes with notes on the general care needed to look after the planting and to ensure that the plants perform at their best. It’s easy!
