The Gardener's Palette takes the mystery out of planning and planting a flourishing garden, providing the gardener with invaluable advice and gorgeous photographs to serve as inspiration. Treating the garden as a blank canvas and the gardener as an artist, the book takes readers through the process of conceiving, planning, and planting a beautiful flower garden. It includes a list of more than 800 flowers and plants, categorized by color - an especially useful resource for beginning gardeners. Whatever type of garden you're planning - from English cottage garden to container garden to formal parterre - The Gardener's Palette offers tips for seasonal planting, effective plant combinations, and decorative elements like steps, pathways, and trellises."--Back cover."@en ;
