Another sumptuous collection of gardening projects from a celebrated floral designer. This stunning guide presents more than 60 seasonal projects with growing instructions and guidelines for designing, siting, and maintaining container gardens.
With design principles foremost in mind, Hillier advises on how to match surprising plant combinations with an array of containers. Various themes (shape and proportion, texture, and harmonizing or contrasting colors) are represented in lovely color plates that provide a pleasing supplement to Hillier's reassuring guidance. And when it comes to the book's focal point--arrangements suitable for the various seasons--enticing, full-page photographs illustrate each idea featured. In every instance, the allure of flowers and foliage is enhanced by a refined selection of complementary containers: stone troughs, aged terra-cotta pots, wire baskets, antique lead vessels, and glazed urns. Hillier also provides important cultural information, advice on growing conditions, and a valuable plant list for easy reference.
