The Gardener's Book of Colour, Hardback Book


A revised and updated edition of Andrew Lawson's classic work Andrew Lawson has an artist's eye, a scientist's training and long experience as both a gardener and a photographer of gardens.

In this book he calls on all his skills and practical knowledge to illuminate the complex subject of using colour in the garden and to demonstrate the extraordinary power of colour to change the sense of space, to suggest coolness or warmth and to evoke different moods.

The Gardener's Book of Colour shows how to put colours together in garden beds, borders and containers, explaining how to construct harmonizing and contrasting schemes and exuberant displays of mixed colour.

All the major schemes are supported by keyline drawings giving full planting details.

In addition, illustrated plant directories, arranged by colour and flowering season, provide cultivation details for over 850 plants, enabling you to assemble the right plants for your chosen scheme and to carry that scheme through the year. Authoritative and accessible, The Gardener's Book of Colour will stimulate your imagination and put exciting new ideas within your grasp.

Whether you want an instant splash of brilliant seasonal colour or a sumptuous border with subtle year-round appeal, this book will show you how to achieve it.
