This review is from: RHS Encyclopedia of Planting Combinations (Hardcover)
Not a surprise to find an RHS publication that 'does what is says on the cover'. A pleasure to use, for both novice and professional.
What appears initially to be just another book of beautiful photographs, turns out to be a comprehensive tome bursting with ideas. All right, by the very nature of things not all those ideas are new, but, having read the 'How to use the Book' section you can hardly go wrong. The impressive amount of detail ensures whatever idea takes you fancy, you will be given exact instructions on its suitabilty for your site. Not just for your climate zone, but water and light requirements, suitability of soil type, colour combinations , time year for flowering of each item in the combination, plant heights, plus variations on the basic planting combinations.
I am thinking of buying a second copy as one is bound to be soiled by constantly being outside working with(for) me.
