RHS COLOUR COMPANION. A Visual Dictionary of Colour for Gardeners // by Ross Bayton, Richard Sneesby
An inspirational and practical guide to incorporating colour in your garden.
Whether you are planning a brand-new garden or looking for complementary plants to add to your existing one, RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Colour Companion is an inspirational and highly practical sourcebook of ideas for incorporating colour into your garden.
An introductory section explains the basics of colour in plants and how it can be harnessed, and colour-themed chapters then focus on each colour's uses in the garden. A gallery of garden elements for each colour then follows - from foliage and flowers to bark, fruit, berries and even hard landscaping materials. Each plant in the gallery is supported with cultivation guidance and suggestions for incorporating it into a planting plan for maximum impact.
