A beautifully illustrated edition of Colour Schemes for the Flower Garden, one of the most influential gardening books of the 20th century. With an approach as fresh and relevant now as when it first appeared in 1908, this book, by the great garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, is an eloquent expression of her painterly ideas on colour, and takes the form of an inspiring and instructive tour of her own garden at Munstead Wood. Beautiful and delicate illustrations of some of Gertrude Jekyll's favourite plants augment full-color interpretations of her planting plans to convey an instant impression of her aims. This edition – with a preface by Richard Bisgrove – does full justice to the author's vision of the use of color in the garden.
Gertrude Jekyll created over 400 gardens in England, Europe and America. She holds a unique place in the making of English gardens and has exerted immense influence on good garden planting throughout the world. Her Colour Schemes for the Flower Garden, first published in 1908, was one of the most influential gardening books of the 20th century. She died in 1932. Richard Bisgrove is the director of the Landscape Management degree course at Reading University. He has designed gardens in Britain and the United States and lectures internationally on the history of garden design and on the work of Gertrude Jekyll.
