From the cover: A beautifully illustrated edition of Colour Schemes for the Flower Garden, one of the most influential gardening books of the 20th century. With an approach as fresh and relevant now as when it first appeared in 1908, this book, by the great garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, is an eloquent expression of her painterly ideas on colour, and takes the form of an inspiring and instructive tour of her own garden at Munstead Wood.
Beautiful and delicate illustrations of some of Gertrude Jekylls favourite plants augment full-colour interpretations of her planting plans to convey an instant impression of her aims. This edition with a preface by Richard Bisgrove does full justice to the authors vision of the use of colour in the garden.
