Hardy? Evergreen? Easy to grow? How much shade?!?! .... No trace of this info :(
on 17 March 2013
OKish little book with a good number of shade loving plants.... But far too basic for my liking!
There is no information on how easy or difficult is to grow the plant, how hardy it is, if it need winter protection, neither info if the plant is annual, evergreen!!?!? Things that as a non expert gardener I need to know!
I need to check missing information in other books and scribble notes all around the book.
There only one picture per plant. Normally the flowers are displayed, sometimes does no give you an idea how the plant looks like. But I have to admit the pictures in the book do look very nice, and they have inspired a few planting ideas.
