In 'The Creative Shrub Garden' Andy McIndoe provides a truly
shrub-focused design guide which shows the reader how to combine
shrubs along with perennials and bulbs in attractive, long-lasting
planting schemes. He describes how to use these low-maintenance
woody plants in the way that gardeners normally use perennials. The
book contains a planting design chapter which uses a mood-board
approach to show how different garden moods and styles can be
achieved with the right combination of shrubs. Handy lists cover
key topics such as shrubs for difficult situations and readers can
also use the comprehensive plant directory to make up their own
personalised planting schemes.
