This is a super little book and brilliant for the novice gardener (me)! We had just moved house, I had no idea about plants and this book helped me to identify all the plants that came up in my garden throughout the year. It is arranged by season (starting with early spring) and then by colour, so if you have a plant that appears in early summer and is red go to the 'Early Summer' chapter and then look at 'Red' - it couldn't be easier. I shall be planning my planting using the book - what colours do I want and when do I want them?

There is also a lot of information about each plant - type, size, best position and type of soil - to help you avoid expensive mistakes. The index contains both common and latin names to help you find your way around. If you buy only one plant reference book, make it this one!

The book is laid out in sections based around the seasons from spring to winter. Plants that look good at various times of the year are shown with clear pictures and desriptions.

This helps you select suitable plants depending on the your requirements such as leaf colour or flowers.

A useful section for plants suitable for all seasons is included helpful when chosing structure planting for a garden with all year interest.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Muppet on 7 Jan 2011
Perfect, pocket sized reference book (551 pages), each double page is split into four, with a good photo of the plant in question, and a brief synopsis of the plants likes and dislikes. The index is very good - listing both English and Latin names of each plant.

More of a planning tool than a shopping companion (if that's what you need, get Plants for Places!) but works brilliantly as a cross reference to Plants for Places when planning a garden.

I was constantly borrowing this from one of two friends who have a copy so just had to get one of my own. It is invaluable I use it often and it is worth every penny
