Want to create a dramatic garden that leaves a lasting impression? This stunning guide offers a new approach to planning and planting, encouraging you to throw caution to the wind and orchestrate colours, textures, scale and scent to spectacular effect from spring until autumn. The key is colour: intense, strong and voluptuous such as deep crimsons combined with acid green and incandescent orange. Integral to the vision is a feeling for dramatic scale: plants with huge presence, architectural foliage, strong, sculptural shapes and to complete the effect, flowers with silken and velvety textures and flooding the garden with scent. There are schemes for sunny, open beds and borders for shady areas, for damp soils and to clothe walls and fences - many of which include lots of quick-growing annuals and take only a season to achieve. This is the go-to guide for achieving a spectacular and striking garden.
