What Plant Where Reviews
One of the basic rules for planting a garden is to plant where the plant grows best; the right soil, the right amount of sunlight, the right zone. This book provides this information along with information about the expected size and structure the plant. Any body looking for ideas for landscaping an area would find this simple to use. I have loaned this book to several people who also loved it. The last person I lent it to never returned it. I found I could not live without it. The price on Amazon was great and the condition was excellent.
Helpful when planting properly for plant health.
I love this book. It gives great ideas about what will thrive in my soil and conditions - like sunny & dry or shady and wet. laymans language and good photos.
I have a copy of this and love it. Wanted to gift it to a gardening friend.
I used to get this at the library a couple of times every year.
Helpful to new gardeners and even those who are concerned with planting flowers that are compatible with their locations. Great starter book too.
cannot write a review as it was bought as a present and I have not seen it.
Normally I shy away from British gardening books for a variety of reasons. All to frequently they feature plants that are difficult for American gardeners to find. Many of the plants that flourish in Britain struggle to survive in much of the US and vise-a-versa. In addition, frequently British design books discuss formal gardens, showing pictures of gardens around palaces or castles. As I have yet to have a client request a garden design for their castle, I find these books irrelevant to modern day America. Consequently, I was quite shocked when I learned the author of the wonderfully practical book, "What Plant Where", Roy Lancaster, lives and gardens in England.
