With these 85 plants—plus a little imagination, planning, and this essential guide—any garden can look beautiful all year round. Each shrub, climber, tree, perennial, and other border plant receives one full page or more of coverage, and is superbly photographed and shown thriving throughout at least two seasons. An enlightening introduction explains basic planting principles, and sections dealing with foliage, flowers, berries, bark, and more reveal the variety of different possible effects gardeners can achieve any time of year. The bulk of the book is devoted to inspirational and highly informative plant features, with details on their height and spread, country of origin, flowering season, hardiness, and cultivation.

Recommended by the Sunday Telegraph Magazine as one of the best gardening books of the year.
