Booklist Review

Williams, head gardener at Bourton House in Gloucestershire, England, begins his helpful guide to growing climbing plants with a chapter on garden design, stressing the importance of color, shapes, patterns, and scent. He discusses the use of climbing vegetables and fruit, climbers as ground cover, and those grown in pots, greenhouses, and sunrooms. Other chapters deal with growing plants on walls, fences, pergolas, arbors, tunnels, arches, pyramids, and obelisks, as well as on trees, shrubs, and hedges. There are instructions on building a trellis and fans, a balcony partition, a secluded arbor, a scarecrow, and a willow screen. Also included is a comprehensive plant directory and 120 color photographs. --George Cohen
