The flower-powered garden : supercharge your borders and containers with bold, colourful plant combinations

Vernon, Andy2018
Books
For many gardeners, the low-key colours of the naturalistic gardening movement are just too quiet. Andy Vernon, a self-professed flower fanatic, is one of these gardeners. In The Flower- Powered Garden, he urges everyone to embrace one of the most joyful and important parts of a garden-colour. The Flower-Powered Garden highlights perennials and annuals that pack a punch, and 15 colour combinations that can be used in containers and gardens. The boisterous combinations are inspired by some of Vernon's favourite things-like sherbet, budgies, and candy. A floripedia of 50 marvellous plants includes colourful favourites like dahlias, petunias, hollyhocks, fuchsias, and more. A section on growing details the basics of planting, watering, soil needs, and growing in containers.
