Summary

Summary

Drawing on her experiences gardening in Australia and the U.K., Marylyn Abbott explains how to use light to bring a flower bed or border to life, through simple observation of the light patterns and sky colours on a garden and clever mixing of varieties. The vastly different quality of the gentle English light and the harsh Australian light is explored here for the first time and is clearly illustrated by beautiful photography.
