The Rose and the Clematis as good companions

£8.99

Product description

"In this attractive and highly informative work, John Howells, a former Chairman of the British Clematis Society, introduces his readers to the idea of growing roses and clematis together. He shows how the climbing rose is the natural companion of the clematis and how, when the two are grown together, the overall effect can be dramatic. The author explains, with the aid of clear step by step illustrated instructions, the effective course of action for success in this increasingly popular area of companion plant growing.

Written in plain, straightforward language, the author covers every aspect of the subject. As well as details of classification, in which the best plants for the job are discussed, the author provides important seasonal growing information including autumn and spring pruning techniques, planting details and invaluable advice on the use of colour. The vexed question of pests and diseases is also dealt with at length.

This is an instructive title, of special value to the reader with a limited knowledge of gardening but also containing much to interest the more experienced grower. Written by an enthusiastic amateur grower, with an extensive and practical experience of his subject, readers will be encouraged by the author's sound advice and inspired by the wealth of outstanding colour photographs showing what can be achieved."

Book in very good condition.
