1 Boyd, Lizzie Ed Successful Gardening Colour Round the Year
This is a book to spark your gardening creativity with foliage and flowers throughout the year. The volume begins with the four seasons, moves on to leaf colors and then sorts plants by color palette. Each color set, such as blue and mauve, brings in yellow, orange and red. The section then gives you blues throughout the year and all combinations are shown through photographs and drawings, to give you an idea of how to plant these for best show. At the end of each section there are charts for the colored flowers separated by shrubs, annuals/biennials, and border plants. No need to pay thousands for landscaping when you have a book that helps you do it yourself! 176 pages with index. Laminated cover with cloth spine. 8 1/2" x 12

2 Coltart, Douglas Designing and Renovating Larger Gardens
NEW - Designing a large garden may seem overwhelming, but with careful planning and a dash of creativity any gardener can achieve a beautiful and highly manageable space. Success lies in addressing the unique - but wholly surmountable - challenges that affect large gardens. This book concentrates on gardens of 1/3 acre or more (although I think many of the ideas can be used in smaller gardens) . Fundamental ground rules for larger gardens, such as anchoring the garden into the surrounding landscape, making the most of arrival space, creating focal points, scaling up, and linking individual elements to form a unified whole are included. Valuable are the recommendations for maintenance of the space. Using diagrams, illustrations and case studies, the authors shares many of his projects and supplements advice with photographs. Also included are suggestions of appropriate plants for specific sites and purposes. Includes index and further reading. Color photographs. The jacket has a 1" vertical tear at the top back. ; 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall
