Planting for Colour

Planting for Colour is one of the new titles in a series of gardening books from David and Charles working in partnership with Hillier, Britain's most respected plantsmen. Your garden colour scheme will depend on the style of garden you want to create. You may want to plant spontaneously, or you may want to restrict the colours you use. Either way using a colour scheme can change an ordinary garden into a spectacular place instantly. Planting for Colour explores what colour can add to your garden and how to achieve the effect you require. It discusses the multitude of ways to put colour together, demonstrates how colour can change the sense of space, suggest coolness and warmth, and create different moods. It also enables you to assemble the right plants for your chosen scheme, and to carry that scheme throughout the year. Planting for Colour will show you how to make the best use of the 'gardener's palette' in ways that will delight, intrigue, transform and entertain.
