Colour in the Garden

A sumptuously colorful garden has the extraordinary power to lift the spirits no matter the time of year. Yet many people struggle to create their own color combinations that are suitable to site and soil, and which take their gardens through the seasons. This new book provides inspiration and practical advice for gardeners wishing to improve their plantings, both in appearance and in use. Val Bourne shows how varied and vibrant plantings can enhance the look of beds and borders, and how – with a little planning – they can be beautiful features for much longer than one season. Color in the Garden is particularly useful for those with small gardens, where every inch of space must work hard for as long as possible. Written by a true plantswoman and experienced gardener, with an in-depth knowledge of plants and how they behave, as well as a strong and creative sense of color, this guide will revolutionize the way we think about color in our gardens and ensure that no gardener will ever feel at a loss again.

Colour for Adventurous Gardeners

It's opinionated, it's controversial and it's the most colourful book on plant associations you'll ever read.

Colour for Adventurous Gardeners

Here, at last, is a book on gardening with colour by its most adventurous exponent -Christopher Lloyd. COLOUR FOR ADVENTUROUS GARDENERS is about using colour for maximum impact.No border, no garden is ever monochromatic and even an all-green garden consists of many shades, yet books for gardeners treat each colour as a separate entity and, like painting by numbers, set out rules to be followed. With a chapter on every colour -from 'Challenging Orange' to 'Sophisticated Black', Christopher Lloyd explores each colour in relation to others and discusses the rules in order to encourage the gardener to break them. 'The limitations imposed by rules,' he writes, 'are a safe-haven, but the adventurous gardener will want to try something different.'If a colour is 'polite', Lloyd certainly knows how to liven it up without making it vulgar. In a fashionable all-white border, he advocates a touch of clear pink to make you sit up; he suggests bright scarlet rose hips in a purple bed to introduce a note of rebellion.COLOUR FOR ADVENTUROUS GARDENERS is NOT another book on gardening with colour. It's opinionated, it's controversial and it's the most colourful book on plant associations you'll ever read.

Contemporary Color in the Landscape

In gorgeous, color-drenched photos Andrew Wilson showcases the work of leading garden designers as inspiring examples of the way color is used.

Contemporary Color in the Landscape

Color is the first and most important design choice a garden designer makes. Over the past decade, landscape architects and garden designers have moved away from the more sedate shades commonly found in traditional gardens and have used plants and hardscape to experiment with explosions of color. From the layered and textural colors of Piet Oudolf to the high contrast colors of Tom Stuart Smith, this increased focus on color is a trademark of today's leading designers. Contemporary Color in the Landscape explores the whole spectrum of color: how we perceive and respond to color, how to design with color, how to manipulate contrast and create intensity with saturation, how to maximize impact by minimizing color, how to find your own personal color combinations, and how color is viewed in nature. In gorgeous, color-drenched photos Andrew Wilson showcases the work of leading garden designers as inspiring examples of the way color is used. Innovative gardens from all over the world help the reader visualize the core color lessons throughout the book. Supported by more than 300 stunning photographs, Contemporary Color in the Landscape integrates cutting-edge designers, their landscapes, color theory, new design ideas, and gorgeous photography into one inspirational, instructional, and must-have guide for design professionals.

The Morville Year

One of the most admired gardening writers of her generation, Katherine Swift returns to describe a year in the life of her garden she created over twenty years in the grounds of the Dower House at Morville, Shropshire, meditating on everything from the terrain and its history, to the plants and trees, and the odd habits of the animals and humans who inhabit the garden. Following the turning wheel of the Morville seasons, from the green shoots of spring, through summer and autumn, to the stark beauty of winter, and back to spring again, The Morville Year is a journal full of surprises and enchantments that will appeal not only to gardeners, but to all who enjoy the natural world.

Science and the Garden

Most conventional gardening books concentrate on how and when to carry out horticultural tasks such as pruning, seed sowing and taking cuttings. Science and the Garden, Third Edition is unique in explaining in straightforward terms some of the science that underlies these practices. It is principally a book of 'Why' – Why are plants green? Why do some plants only flower in the autumn? Why do lateral buds begin to grow when the terminal bud is removed by pruning? Why are some plants successful as weeds? Why does climate variability and change mean change for gardeners? But it also goes on to deal with the 'How', providing rationale behind the practical advice. The coverage is wide-ranging and comprehensive and includes: the diversity, structure, functioning and reproduction of garden plants; nomenclature and classification; genetics and plant breeding; soil properties and soil management; environmental factors affecting growth and development; methods of propagation; size and form; colour, scent and sound; climate; environmental change; protected cultivation; pest, disease and weed diversity and control; post-harvest management and storage; garden ecology and conservation; sustainable horticulture; gardens and human health and wellbeing; and gardens for science. This expanded and fully updated Third Edition of Science and the Garden includes two completely new chapters on important topics: Climate and Other Environmental Changes Health, Wellbeing and Socio-cultural Benefits Many of the other chapters have been completely re-written or extensively revised and expanded, often with new authors and/or illustrators, and the remainder have all been carefully updated and re-edited. Published in collaboration with the Royal Horticultural Society, reproduced in full colour throughout, carefully edited and beautifully produced, this new edition remains a key text for students of horticulture and will also appeal to amateur and professional gardeners wishing to know more about the fascinating science behind the plants and practices that are the everyday currency of gardening.

Colourful Gardens

Partly through a revival of interest in classic gardens, and partly out of a reaction to the severe, minimal look that dominates the style magazines, gardeners are increasingly turning to colour. In Colourful Gardens Dennis Greville takes us through the essential steps in creating a gloriously eye-catching garden. The introduction explains how to structure a garden along the basic principles of colour combinations. The following chapters are then given to the different colours or tones: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue/Purple, White, and Pastels. Each chapter showcases the use of each colour in scenic and close-up photography, describes the characteristics and uses of the colour, and includes a magnificent portrait gallery of 24 plants that span the full range of the spectrum and help the gardener keep colour going through the year. The result is a beautiful, inspirational and practical introduction to creating an unforgettable garden. Colourful Gardens is styled and pitched as a stable-mate to Get Fresh, New Holland's vegetable and herb book by Dennis Greville.
