The Year-Round Garden is a unique, easy-to-use gardening book that shows readers how to combine plants to create a stunning year-round effect. While other gardening books often focus on planting for different seasons, this book suggests practical plant combinations that work across seasons, the result being a garden that adapts for the better with every passing season.
The opening section is broken down into seasons, with profiles of the most appropriate plants for each time of year. Every plant will have a brief description and a list of companion plants that will either complement the featured plant during its main period of interest, or will prolong the interest for several seasons.
The middle section shows plant schemes in action, using sequential photography from specially planted gardens to demonstrate how mixing the profiled plants together really does extend the garden's vitality beyond seasonal ups and downs.
A detailed chart at the back of the book provides easily accessible cultivation notes on all the profiled plants, from hardiness and soil issues, to optimum height and pruning requirements.
A practical book for all gardening enthusiasts, The Year-Round Garden provides hundreds of planting ideas. Readers can plan their gardens in advance and to enjoy their outside space 12 months of the year.
