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.
