Book review : My Ealy copy from Net Galley

This is a unique gardening book, broken out by various color combinations as the chapters. Each chapter displays a color chart along with an introduction, highlighting information about the colors and flowers and providing examples of how it was interpreted by artists, gardeners and / or writers. There are large photographs of gardens depicting each color combination. This is then followed by individual photos of the plants / flowers along with a growth chart for each one; outlining type, height, spread, season, light, moisture, hardiness and soil pH..

This book is not only a great resource for a gardener wanting to learn how to design a garden with various color combinations, but is also a valuable resource for an artist seeking harmonious color combination ideas for their artwork. This book would make a great gift for a gardening friend or for yourself in hardback edition. So grab your copy July 5th.
