Partly through a revival of interest in classic gardens, and partly out of a reaction to the severe, minimal look that dominates the style magazines, gardeners are increasingly turning to colour. In Colourful Gardens Dennis Greville takes us through the essential steps in creating a gloriously eye-catching garden. The introduction explains how to structure a garden along the basic principles of colour combinations. The following chapters are then given to the different colours or tones: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue/Purple, White, and Pastels. Each chapter showcases the use of each colour in scenic and close-up photography, describes the characteristics and uses of the colour, and includes a magnificent portrait gallery of 24 plants that span the full range of the spectrum and help the gardener keep colour going through the year. The result is a beautiful, inspirational and practical introduction to creating an unforgettable garden. Colourful Gardens is styled and pitched as a stable-mate to Get Fresh, New Holland's vegetable and herb book by Dennis Greville.
