“Colour in the flower garden” is a vintage book on gardening that focuses on the use and variety of colourful flowers. It offers guidance for which flowers are best for each season, providing detailed descriptions, simple instructions, and expert tips to help the reader create a beautiful flower garden of their own.

She is responsible for designing and creating over 400 gardens in the United Kingdom, Europe and the United States, as well as writing more than 1,000 articles for related magazines. She is credited with having had a significant influence on gardening by both British and American enthusiasts. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of gardening.
