Colour for Adventurous Gardeners by Christopher Lloyd

Book Description

This book on gardening with colour by its most adventurous exponent Christopher Lloyd OBE - is now available in paperback as well as hardback. With a chapter on every colour from 'Challenging Orange' to 'Sophisticated Black', Lloyd explores each colour in relation to others and discusses the rules in order to encourage the gardener to break them. If a colour is 'polite', Lloyd certainly knows how to liven it up without making it vulgar. In an all-white border, he advocates a touch of clear pink to make you sit up; he suggests bright scarlet rose hips in a purple bed to introduce a note of rebellion. Stunning photographs by Jonathan Buckley enhance this superb collection of colour combinations. Colour for Adventurous Gardeners is opinionated, controversial and the most colourful book on plant associations ever written.

Buy Colour for Adventurous Gardeners book by Christopher Lloyd from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
