"Gardens Illustrated": Plant Profiles

by RosieAtkins (Editor)


Gardens Illustrated magazine acknowledges that gardeners love plants and want to know their origins and parentage as well as details about colour, form and habit. This book brings together 25 of the best plant features from the magazine in one highly illustrated volume. Written by a band of well-known plant experts, the profiles include essential information on the provenance of the each species, helping readers to understand the plant's needs. The authors have, in many cases, observed the plant growing wild and all have intimate knowledge of each species and its preferred environment. Divided into five sections - early risers, sunseekers, show stoppers, strong performers and curiosities - Plant Profiles opens gardeners' eyes to the diversity of the plant families featured, enabling them to introduce new species into their gardens that not only look at home, but really flourish.
