9780114958039: Scottish Plants for Scottish Gardens (Discovering Historic Scotland)

The native species of Scotland covered in this book have been selected for their attractiveness as a flower, fruit or foliage and are non-invasive. They are suitable for a range of garden habits - shade, rock garden, herbaceous border, ponds and pond margins. Most will flourish in Scottish gardens with either neutral or acid soils and they should be available from nurseries. This book should inspire all gardners to discover native flowers, trees and shrubs for their own gardens - thereby preserving a very important and often neglected area of Scotland's identity.
