About this book

Many gardens have acid soil. Tell-tale signs will be adjacent gardens, or the wider landscape, containing masses of healthy plants such as rhododendrons, camellias and heathers. But it will also mean that there is a large range of plants that cannot be easily grown. How can you identify these? Are there suitable alternatives? And what are the tricks to get the best from your soil?

This helpful and attractive book helps identify the acidity of your soil and the practical advice given here will ensure you plant wisely and help you to create the garden of your dreams.
