Beautiful Borders is just the guide you need if you want to create borders that burst with colour and variety, that have depth and structure, that have staying power and adaptability. There's more to it than just picking a few plants you like the look of!

This book will take you through every step: designing your border, taking into account light, soil, location and aspect; choosing your flowers and plants, based on the chosen design; and preparing, growing and maintaining. Written in a clear, accessible style, with helpful checklists and tips, and beautiful illustration, you won't need any other guide!
