RHS COMPANION TO SCENTED PLANTS is an authoritative guide to creating beautiful, well designed gardens that are highly scented, and shows how scent can turn a good-looking garden into an unforgettable one.
Stephen Lacey analyses the different scent ‘flavours’ available to the gardener, and discusses how to use scent as an ingredient in a planting scheme. An experienced gardener and plantsman, he shows how a simultaneous display of riches for the eye and the nose is within the grasp of every gardener. A comprehensive catalogue describes over 1,000 of the best plants to grow for their fragrance as well as their beauty.
This is the only major reference work on scent and scented plants and is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society. THE RHS COMPANION TO SCENTED PLANTS By Stephen Lacey, Photographs by Andrew Lawson
