From the world’s most respected gardening organization, a new, soon-to-be classic guide to successfully using color in the home garden.

“A fascinating study of how to combine the colors you love in the best possible ways throughout your garden.” –Veranda
“A glorious celebration and classic guide to the richness and variety of color combinations available to gardeners and designers… A thought-provoking book that will encourage gardeners to look at their plot with fresh eyes.”Gardens Illustrated

“Thompson presents bold and creative ways to incorporate color into planting schemes.” The Telegraph

“Recommended for exploring the theory, construction, and creation of colour in gardening.” —Country Town House

Since its foundation in 1804, the Royal Horticultural Society has been at the forefront of horticultural practice, research, and education in the UK, and today it reaches millions of people through its gardens, shows, community programs, publications, and membership. The RHS was founded with, and still retains, the principal purpose of encouraging and improving the science, art, and practice of horticulture in all its branches. Its founding members wanted to form a repository for all the knowledge which could be collected on the subject of horticulture, and to encourage others to work towards its further improvement, for the general improvement of the country. Now, the RHS is the UK’s leading gardening charity, dedicated to helping people share a passion for plants, encouraging excellence in horticulture, and inspiring all those with an interest in gardening.
