A great little book (145mm x 110mm x 30mm), with loads of suggestions of plants for the right spot in the garden. Covers clay soil, sandy soil, chalky soil, acid soil, dry shade, damp shade, north and east facing walls, south and west facing walls, ground cover, water gardens, containers, in fact you name a place and it has a suggestion!

As a professional gardener I am sure I will refer to this book many times over the coming years. Like most of the DK RHS collaborations, it has excellent content that is very clearly and attractively laid out.

Bought several books when I started re-doing my garden, I found this one is extremely handy, great selection of recommended plants along with useful information on them. However, what I find very helfull about this book is the size that you can carry it to garden center and do realtime check of what you see there. The only improvement that I think is needed in this book is the information of flowering period of the plants.

Being a novice gardener I needed advice on what to plant and where to plant it. It doesn't come much better than this. Although the book was smaller in size than I expected it was very well set out with hundreds of plants, very clear photo's and lots of advice.

I have loads of gardening books and they go into great detail but most are large and you have to wade through loads of information to get to what you want. This book is small enough to keep in the car and depending on handbag size to carry round if you wish. It is very easy to follow and saves money as you don't end up buying plants that stand no chance of growing in your garden. You don't have to be extremely knowledgable about plants as all the information you need is is in the book including eventual size.

This book has been invaluable to me and my colleagues who work at a garden centre. When customers ask questions on what plant goes where it is so useful to consult the book as sometimes you can get a mental block or run out of ideas at that moment. As you know there are hundreds of plants and this guide is an excellent reference to the most common and popular ones. We even allow the customers to use it on occasions when we are a bit too busy for personal attention. I'm sure that a lot more copies have been sold after they have seen how good it is!
The format is clear and the pictures are quite good making it easy to recognize the plants. The best thing is it's so small you can put it in a large pocket or in your bag if you're out shopping for plants. Highly recommended !

Bought this as a package with What Plant When and Gardening Month by Month. Very handy reference, good photos. When I can't find a plant in one it is usually featured in the other. Only complaint is the size of the print used for the index - you need a magnifying glass - so not so good for taking to the garden centre with you as What Plant When which has an easy to read index but a good addition to my reference collection.

It is full of ideas what to plant where. It is easy to read and I would highly recommend this to everyone even if you have a postage stamp size garden
