About this book

Grasses are filigree plants of particular beauty, with a great richness of colours, shapes and textures. Including more than 180 stunning colour photographs, Grasses in the Garden: Design Ideas, Plant Portraits and Care celebrates the versatility of ornamental grasses year-round. It illustrates how to plant grasses for both subtle and explosive colour effects. A section on garden design with grasses offers advice on lines and accents as well as the practicalities of different habitats and light and shade requirements.

Grasses can make wonderful accompaniments for planting alongside roses, trees and shrubs, and also look very striking as container plants – detailed advice is given for choosing the right grass for each situation. A highly informative section on the care of grasses – from purchasing the right plants, through to propagation – offers the gardener practical support. Grasses in the Garden gives you everything you need to use these fascinating plants to maximum effect.
