This work attempts to entice gardeners to use fragrant plants in the home landscape. Accompanied by 250 outstanding color photographs, it works well as an attractive introduction to English garden plants and flowers worth growing for their scent as well as their beauty. However, almost no practical growing information is provided. Experienced gardeners with growing conditions similar to those in England will find the book quite useful. Others may use it as an attractive presentation on scented plants. For larger gardening collections.
