…packed with tips on keeping a plot colourful throughout the year — Country Living Magazine

Val Bourne's book is a timely reminder that colour is the reason why many of us get excited about plants… beautifully shot, well captioned photographs… Bourne manages to sprinkle her text with all manner of practical tips and anecdotes… this is a super source of inspiration and advice, and a great book for those who want to extend the colour in their garden into new seasons. — Gardens Illustrated Magazine
