About this book

There are many examples of British wildflowers that we routinely use in our gardens and still more that could be used if we knew just a little more about them. Divided according to their natural habitats, the book features almost 200 different wild plants and photographs of each. Each habitat is introduced with practical information and tips, along with inspirational planting plans that show you how to combine plants creatively for maximum effect. All the essential facts, such as height, habitat, care and propagation are provided, to enable you to site plants successfully.
