I am no gardener!! I was given this book and I think it is actually going to encourage me to try and be creative and adventurous in my garden after years of being afraid of doing the "wrong" thing. The pictures are gorgeous and there is loads of advice about how to plan planting all year round. Val Bourne seems to have the knack of being authoritative about plants whilst making her reader feel that even a rank beginner can tackle planting in a creative and eye-catching way. I look forward to a brighter, more colourful garden with this book to refer back to as my guide.
