What do Elton John and The
Jacksonville Garden Club in Florida have in common?
They both like plants and Rosemary Verey's Garden
Designs. This book contains more than 25 of her designs. From knots to plots and every size in between, Rosemary Verey has
created a garden for it. Each garden design is accompanied by
color photos, plant listings and descriptions as well as a
watercolor layout. What I really like about the book is how many
of the plants are herbs. Herbs are such a natural choice for the
landscape because they bring life and use to the garden.
particularly liked her Outdoor Dining Room Garden. In a small
space, she was able to create a relaxing atmosphere capable of
hosting leisurely lunches or sumptuous suppers both enhanced by
the wonders of plants.
As with all books written about plants, be sure to check a
reliable source to ensure that your area is appropriate for the plant you
choose. If it is a plant we grow here at Mountain Valley Growers,
you can check it out in our catalog or on our website.
