A book for CL's fans and followers
on 24 July 2014
I bought this book without being familiar with Lloyd's style of gardening. The problem for me is that I don't share much of his taste in plants, so there was not a lot I could take away from this book to inspire my own gardening. Instead, I found the RHS book "What Plant When" to be an easier book to inspire succession planting in the garden. Unlike the present book, "What Plant When" is much more concise and lacks the verbose opinionism of this book, and by taking the plants featured in "What Plant When" as a starting point, I have been able to come up with my own ideas for succession planting.
