The All-Seasons Garden

John Kelly, Author, J. A. Kelly, Author Penguin Books $14.95 (167p) ISBN 978-0-14-046800-7
The abundant selection of lovely watercolors and brilliant photographs provided here serve not only to illustrate Kelly's sound instructions but to convince readers that they, too, can create visually rich gardens year round. The author, a British garden curator and a botanical adviser on BBC-TV, offers clear, stimulating suggestions that are firmly rooted in essentials: planning, planting, pruning, feeding, etc. Lucid information details how to design a steady procession of trees, shrubs, bulbs and herbaceous plants that will flower throughout the year in sites small and large; in city and country; and in different climates (in one colorful picture, red berries and green leaves contrast beautifully with white snow). The book is virtually encyclopedic, a boon for beginner and expert alike. (April)
