About this book

This manual is about the role of colour, in relation to other attributes of plants, in the making of gardens. It demonstrates how Gertrude Jekyll composed inspired garden pictures, which, with their closely-related colour patterns and subtle gradations of hue, were a major influence on the development of English garden design. In this modern edition, colour photographs replace the black-and-white pictures of earlier editions and the text is enhanced by delicate illustrations of some of Gertrude Jekyll's favourite plants. Her planting plans have been redrawn and interpreted in colour and supplemented by hitherto unpublished designs. The revisions should make it more accessible for today's reader.
