Description

This comprehensive catalogue of over 1000 scented plants to grow for their fragrance as well as beauty is the only major reference work on scent and scented plants and is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society. Whether you're an experienced gardener or you just like flowers, this authoritative guide to creating beautiful, well designed gardens that are highly scented will show you how scent can turn a good-looking garden into an unforgettable one. Join experienced gardener and plantsman Stephen Lacey as he analyses the different scent ‘flavours’ available to the gardener and discusses how to use scent as an ingredient in a planting scheme, showing how a simultaneous display of riches for the eye and the nose is within the grasp of every gardener.
