Description of this Book

For many gardeners, the low-key colors, grasses, and foliage of the naturalistic gardening movement are just too quiet. Andy Vernon, a self-professed flower fanatic, is one of these gardeners. In The Flower-Powered Garden he shares fifty plants that pack a punch and fifteen combinations that can be used in containers if gardens. The boisterous combinations are inspired by favorite things, like sherbet, budgies, Allsorts, and strawberries and cream. A floripedia of marvelous plants includes colorful favorites like petunias, hollyhocks, fuchsias, sunflowers, poppies, and more.
