About this book

Jane Packer showcases a unique variety of stunning flowers and individual varieties of foliage, not in alphabetical order, but simply by colour. Within chapters of Red, White, Green, Yellow, Pink and Blue, Jane discusses her favourite flowers season by season and reveals 10 specially commissioned ideas and designs that readers can recreate with the help of clear step-by-step instructions and photography. A seasonal flower directory completes the book. Jane uses the range of colour in flowers to not only create different moods like an interior designer, but she also uses new flowers and foliage to mirror fashion trends as colours come and go with each season. Colour is both inspiring and intensely practical. It is a flower and foliage directory arranged by colour; a guide to mixing and matching and a collection of Jane's ideas and designs. This is classic Jane Packer and her most definitive and useful book.
