Everyone wants a garden that is beautiful at all times, but in too many gardens there is only one really attractive season, from late spring to midsummer.
This book shows how to put colour in the garden all year round by selecting plants that have beautiful foliage, stems and fruit, as well as flowers. It tells readers all they need to know about designing and planning a framework of evergreens and garden features, and discusses, season-by-season, the best plants for constant appeal throughout the year.
The book is illustrated throughout with full-colour photographs and watercolours of gardens. John Kelly is the co-presenter of BBC Television's "Gardener's World" and is the author of "Amateur Gardening", "The Garden" and "Foliage in Your Garden".
