PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
A nice basic introduction to garden planning. The color plates are lovely.
Different types of gardens are discussed and planning advice presented in a readable way.
A combination of plants and shrubs are photographed together so that the reader can see how they look in a landscape setting. I find that is is one of the nicest features of the book, as actual images are much better than an artist's rendition of a supposed scene.
