Inspiration for stunning planting for your garden throughout the year – from Anna Pavord, one of today’s most inspiring and much-loved garden writers, author of the global bestseller The Tulip

First published in 2001, and now fully revised and updated, in this inspirational book, acclaimed bestselling author Anna Pavord selects 60 ‘star plants’ – from iris to hostas – and pairs each with two perfect partners: shrubs, herbaceous perennials, bulbs, and annuals that no garden should be without. This classic book reveals how best to group plants in a garden to create a year-long display. Ranging from hydrangeas, salvias and ferns to dahlias, tulips and snowdrops, each star plant is paired with two partners, offering gardeners creative planting solutions to achieve stunning results, season by season.
