Right Plant, Right Place
Over 1400 Plants for Every Situation in the GardenBook - 2005
When Nicola Ferguson first started gardening, she couldn't find a book that would help her with her new, cold, shady garden, so she wrote one herself. The result is an outstanding reference guide that leads gardeners quickly and easily to the plants that will grow well in their own gardens-whatever the conditions. More than 1,400 plants are systematically organized according to practical considerations, such as soil type and light level, as well as purpose and appearance. This established gardening classic has now been completely updated for the twenty-first century. In addition to long-time favorites, the book features hundreds of new plants, with more than 1,000 photographs and a new U.S. plant hardiness zone map. Each four-color illustration is accompanied by a detailed description of the plant, including height, hardiness, flowering season and growing needs. Whether you are an amateur or professional; whether your garden is big or small, windswept or shady; has soil that is chalky or acidic, damp or dry; and whether you want climbers or ground cover, silver leaves or winter flowers, Right Plant, Right Place will have the answers to your trickiest horticultural questions.
