This fresh, mix-and-match approach to creating a glorious flower garden focuses on the importance of shape, colour, and ease of cultivation. TheUltimate Flower Gardener’s Guide gives home gardeners the confidence they need to create the flower-filled garden of their dreams. Jenny Rose Carey proposes a holistic approach to flower gardening with a refreshing twist. Instead of concentrating primarily on colour, it brings flower shape and texture to the fore, helping homeowners make plant choices that come together in an aesthetically pleasing way. The featured plants include both perennials and annuals, and all have been chosen for their ease of care, attractiveness to pollinators, and environmental friendliness.
