The Flower-Powered Garden: Supercharge Your Borders and Containers with Bold, Colourful Plant Combinations
Vernon’s gorgeously illustrated guide drills down deep into the topic, making this an indispensable resource for anyone looking to add a powerful punch of color to their garden.
Discover the joy of a flower-driven garden!
For many gardeners, the low-key colors 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 urges everyone to embrace one of the most joyful and important parts of a garden—color. The Flower-Powered Garden highlights perennials and annuals that pack a punch, and 15 color combinations that can be used in containers and gardens. The boisterous combinations are inspired by some of Vernon’s favorite things—like sherbet, budgies, and candy. A floripedia of 50 marvelous plants includes colorful favorites like dahlias, petunias, hollyhocks, fuchsias, and more. A section on growing details the basics of planting, watering, soil needs, and growing in containers.
