RHS Garden Plants and Flowers by Ian Spence
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is an easy-to-use, pictorial guide to over 2500 tried-and-tested, commonly available garden plants and flowers. Every plant in this reference is illustrated in colour, many with insect details to show the plant's growing habit. The entries are divided into broad groups, from trees and climbers to bulbs and ferns, and special features showcase the most popular plants, such as roses and clematis. Concise, authoritative text provides essential information on specific plants, including possible uses in the garden and particular horticultural needs, and tip boxes appear throughout. A comprehensive practical chapter offers down-to-earth advice on basic plant care, illustrated with clear, step-by-step photographs. In addition, there are lists of plants for places that make it easy to select the best plants for any site, from exposed seaside plots to gardens on steep slopes.
