Review

Perfect Book Perfect Read! If you're one of those gardeners who wish they knew what plant to buy to fill that specific spot, or have a certain soil type but are unsure what plants will suit it, then this is THE book to have. It's not a "how to garden", more of a "what to garden" encyclopaedia, with plants divided into groups according to location, habit, appearance, basically every different growing condition you may come across. Simply look up the criteria you wish and find the plants that thrive in it. It's straight forward and exceptionally easy to follow. My copy is already well-thumbed!

What Plant Where? by Roy Lancaster

Review

A practical planner for all gardeners, "What Plant Where" leads you quickly and clearly to the plants that will grow well in your particular garden. The five chapters on perennials, climbers, shrubs, conifers and trees provide lists of plants for every conceivable site: large border, shady walls, raised beds, rockeries and water gardens. Each plant recommendation is illustrated with a full-colour portrait photograph, supported by all the information needed to guarantee the right choice.

Review

An excellent reference book to keep! This book is excellent and has everything you want to know about the plants themselves, where and how to plant right down to whether they are hardy and how large they grow etc. This book is one of those books that you will keep on your shelf for years to come, always referring back to. It has a good index and has colour photograph pictures throughout.
