If you want to make a satisfying garden you have to pay at least as much attention to foliage as to flowers. In this classic work gardening guru Christopher Lloyd tells us all we need to about using leaves in the garden - what to look for, what to avoid, shapes, sizes, habits, textures and colours. Writing with the skill and pleasure which distinguish his other classic, The Well Tempered Garden, he offers plants of every kind, from shrubs to grasses - evergreen and deciduous, hardy and tender, perennials and annuals, all of them worth growing for their foliage as well as for their flowers. He also suggests, with the aid of sketches and plans, what can be done with them in different positions, from the shady border to the sunny bed.

CHRISTOPHER LLOYD OBE was among the best informed, liveliest, most worthwhile gardening writers of our time and the author of a host of classics. He spent years lovingly developing and refining his celebrated gardens at Great Dixter in Sussex. Throughout his career he was unparalleled in gardening journalism, writing for many publications from COUNTRY LIFE to the GUARDIAN. In 1979 the Royal Horticultural Society conferred on him its highest honour, the VICTORIA MEDAL OF HONOUR. He received the OBE for services to horticulture in 2000, and he died in 2006.Review:
