Perhaps no group of plants is so badly used in our gardens, but used intelligently and creatively, conifers can be instrumental in creating beautiful, long-lasting plant combinations or serene backyard havens. Designing with Conifers will show you how to make the most of this beautiful and versatile group of plants. * Focuses on the design potential of conifers rather than simply on how to grow them * Individual chapters explore colour, shape, specific sites and purposes, making it easy to find the right plant for your intended purpose * Conifers are low maintenance (a plus for today's busy homeowners and older gardeners) and use minimal natural resources while providing year-round interest
The book features a host of dreamy, conifer-heavy gardens.--Ann Stratton "Fine Gardening "
