9780711235748: The RHS Companion to Scented Plants

RHS COMPANION TO SCENTED PLANTS is an authoritative guide to creating beautiful, well designed gardens that are highly scented, and shows how scent can turn a good-looking garden into an unforgettable one.

Stephen Lacey analyses the different scent â??flavoursâ?? available to the gardener, and discusses how to use scent as an ingredient in a planting scheme. An experienced gardener and plantsman, he shows how a simultaneous display of riches for the eye and the nose is within the grasp of every gardener. A comprehensive catalogue describes over 1,000 of the best plants to grow for their fragrance as well as their beauty.

This is the only major reference work on scent and scented plants and is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society.

Review:

"packed with plant suggestions, planting techniques and inspiration for anyone wanting either to introduce perfume into a corner of their garden or to create an entire scented garden."

"a useful and inspiring book ... a rich reference work and an interesting read which will be used for many years."

"For me, this is the best book of the year, a true original that stands out from the generality of potboilers and rehashings of well-worn wisdom."

'This is the only major reference work on scent and scented plants by the RHS and it is certainly one worth having on the gardening bookshelf. Another ideal Christmas gift.'

'This is a great and inspirational book that show how to get the most scent into your garden and would make a great book to receive or give this Christmas whether for the experienced or novice gardener.'

"irresistible book ... gloriously illustrated ... the perfect Christmas present"

"gorgeous guide"

"an authoritative guide to creating beautiful, well-designed gardens that are highly scented."

"rewarding, handsomely produced."

"a dreamy read for any gardener . . .tells you all you need to know about bringing fragrance into your life and garden."

' This is not a sniff-and-scratch book, but the union between Lacey's loving and lucid text and Andrew Lawson's beautiful photographs might occasionally persuade you otherwise.'
