A comprehensive guide to using color in the garden to best advantage. "Color is the most potent weapon in a gardener's armory," Andrew Lawson writes. "Nothing in a garden makes more impact." This guide takes color way beyond the existing guides for gardeners. It adds new dimensions to the art of gardening, and shows the gardener how to put plants together to make personal and effective combinations. It explores not only single-color plantings, but also the wide range of color associations available to the gardener for "painting" pictures with plants. The Gardener's Book of Color caters to every taste and every mood. It explores soothing gardens based on varying hues of greens and restrained color palettes, and describes how harmonies and contrasts create a combination of stimulating, pleasing color. Lawson describes the importance of foliage forms, how the shapes of plants and plantings contribute to an effective garden design, and how plant choices extend to the color of their foliage, stems, bark and berries. The color chapters feature plant directories in which Lawson recommends a variety of seasonal plants for gardening with color. His detailed notes include a brief description of the plant, its cultivation requirements, and botanical and common names. The book finishes with 24 keyline drawings of the garden plans displayed in the book. The plans list the plants used and refer the reader to the page on which there is a photograph of that garden.

Colour for Adventurous Gardeners

This book on gardening with colour by its most adventurous exponent Christopher Lloyd OBE - is now available in paperback as well as hardback. With a chapter on every colour from 'Challenging Orange' to 'Sophisticated Black', Lloyd explores each colour in relation to others and discusses the rules in order to encourage the gardener to break them. If a colour is 'polite', Lloyd certainly knows how to liven it up without making it vulgar. In an all-white border, he advocates a touch of clear pink to make you sit up; he suggests bright scarlet rose hips in a purple bed to introduce a note of rebellion. Stunning photographs by Jonathan Buckley enhance this superb collection of colour combinations. Colour for Adventurous Gardenersis opinionated, controversial and the most colourful book on plant associations ever written.

A sumptuously colorful garden has the extraordinary power to lift the spirits no matter the time of year. Yet many people struggle to create their own color combinations that are suitable to site and soil, and which take their gardens through the seasons. This new book provides inspiration and practical advice for gardeners wishing to improve their plantings, both in appearance and in use. Val Bourne shows how varied and vibrant plantings can enhance the look of beds and borders, and how – with a little planning – they can be beautiful features for much longer than one season. Color in the Garden is particularly useful for those with small gardens, where every inch of space must work hard for as long as possible. Written by a true plantswoman and experienced gardener, with an in-depth knowledge of plants and how they behave, as well as a strong and creative sense of color, this guide will revolutionize the way we think about color in our gardens and ensure that no gardener will ever feel at a loss again.
