About this book

A practical guide to the art of companion planting. It discusses how to arrive at aesthetically pleasing combinations of colour, texture and form while taking account of the plants' habitat requirements and growth characteristics. Throughout the book the dimension of time is considered: to have a garden that is interesting at every season, you need a succession of good associations. Throughout, Rosemary Verey encourages her readers to see their gardens as a whole, both in space and time, combining her artists' eye with her long experience as a plantswoman to demonstrate the art of making a beautiful garden. The accompanying photographs illustrate the principles and practices she describes.
