About this book

Hardy gingers are in high demand again as gardeners have rediscovered their intricately constructed flowers, beautiful perfumes and foliage. This new book demonstrates that although most gingers are tropical plants, a substantial number are perfectly suitable in the English garden. Along with reviewing the stunning number of hardy gingers now widely available, the author highlights the decorative potential of these plants. They make dramatic focal points in tropical-style plantings but can look equally impressive in traditional herbaceous borders, woodland settings, rock gardens, water gardens and containers.
