5.0 out of 5 stars If you only want one book on herbaceous perrenials, buy this, 10 July 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Dream Plants for the Natural Garden (Gardener's Guide Series) (Hardcover)
Quite simply the most useful book on herbaceous plants you will ever need. By grouping the plants by how they behave in your garden Oudolf and Gerritsen have taken all the guesswork out of herbaceous planting. Clear plates, teamed with the author's concentration on only the best varieties of each species help to choose the most appropriate plants. As a professional garden designer I have taken to keeping a copy of the book in my car, and referring to their classifications before buying. This practical advice teamed with Europe's most respected plantsmen's own personal tastes has led me to use plants I had never heard of. Such simple descriptions as "Grows anywhere and is always beautiful, use it" can only inspire. Their advice is so good that you ignore it at your peril, I recently bought some Thalictrum that they specifically warned against as they fall over, I bought some anyway, and watched them grow, start to flower and fall over.

Great review...really rung a bell, especially with the comment on Thalictrums - can't help wondering if there is anywhere in the world where they might stand up!!!! Mine too languish over the border as if they want to be at the front rather than at the back!!!
