About this book

Problem-solving guide to finding the right plant for the right place in your garden. Packed with plant suggestions, cultivation notes and companion ideas, "Plant Solutions" helps you create a suitable and successful planting scheme by finding plants to suit your garden's needs. This thorough directory will enable you to look up plants based on your needs, whether you have a shady spot, lime soil or an urban garden, or need to consider issues such as autumn colour, pollution-tolerant or low-allergen plants. Every entry has a picture, comprehensive cultivation notes and an extensive list of companion plants that will look good at the same time of year. All these cross-refer to other plants in the book to enable gardeners to build up a 'palette' of plants that suit their needs. Plant scheme pictures show how suggested plants work together and a section at the front of the book gives practical guidance on key issues such as soil preparation and pruning. "Plant Solutions" is easily navigable with colour-coded tabs for quick reference to sections firstly on types of plant and then on a particular feature/purpose, for example, trees for autumn colour, annuals to attract wildlife or perennials for shade.
