Summary
This book features species suitable for the smallest spaces, from windowsills to yards. There are also selections to provide seasonal interest in a suburban plot, as well as tasty edibles for vegetable patches and herb gardens. It will steer you through the hype of marketing to find the most rewarding plants and, along the way, you'll discover what characteristics to look for when choosing varieties. The selected plants delight the senses. Edibles produce ripe fruits, tender vegetables, or fresh herbs. Ornamental plants provide beauty in flower, foliage colour, or evocative scents. Some have a pleasing architectural shape or a contrast in texture from sharp spines on cacti to leaves so soft you can stroke them. Other entries concern suriosities of the plant world that make great talking points. The flowers, tress and herbs are selected by an expert team of garden writers and plant lovers but with the home gardener in mind. The book is the equivalent of a knowledgeable friend on hand for when you browse garden centres or search online for seeds and plants. Some of the 1001 are quick to delight; others look after themselves year on year
