Quick Overview

Gardening is every bit as creative as painting flowers in watercolour. And it is in bringing together various elements that a lot of the creativity lies.


This book gives you expert guidance to achieve this, with loads of examples from gardens all over the country. It shows you that a garden is in essence a combination of shapes, textures, colours and growth forms – the ultimate combination of combinations. Learn how to combine plants that are mutually supportive and create their own harmony or combine plants and elements for sameness, or for contrast. By bringing together selected plants and garden elements you create a more beautiful, more arresting and more powerful visual presentation than what could be done by using any of the combined elements individually. The creative scope and different permutations made possible by combinations cannot be quantified – what you can imagine, you can combine. This book looks at combinations in four categories: colour, shape and form, texture, and the specific environment of the garden and its plants. More than 230 magnificent photographs will charm and inspire you and the information will show you how to use combinations skilfully and wisely. Maximise the appeal of your garden by making the most of its combinations.
