    Author seemed to have a good sense of humor and lots of years of practice and knowledge Photos were large and beautiful and showed many uniue and creative planting arrangements I mostly just perused this book and looked at the pictures for ideas I'm putting it on my Goodreads list to remind myself to go back to it once I get the foundation for a flower garden in place in my yard

    I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveawayIf you've ever wanted to know how to make your garden look like the kind you'd see in a magazine The Perennial Matchmaker is definitely a book you'll want to read With its full colour photographs and simple yet effective guiding text it tells readers how to combine numerous types of flowers into beautiful arrangements This is a really helpful and informative book and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes gardening

    The timing for this selection was helpful for my purchases this spring Each selection is listed alphabetically with a thorough synopsis on the plant and its growing season healthy soil water and sun needs and selections that show off the best attributes of the perennial The most interesting information for me was the selection of complimentary plants I will have to add plants but may also be able to transplant my own perennials to another location for optimum beauty The book includes blooms grasses and bulbs Very helpful arranging an eye appealing presentation with ground cover blooms grasses bushes and spacing knowhow

    I am constantly referring back to this book Its chalked full of advice and ideas for someone who dreams about a magazine worthy garden The book helps with pairing bloom times together and companions that will hold up or hide another plants stalks Form texture and color combos are discussed for each flower This is about flower and shrubs than vegetables

    a lot of info and a lot of stuff to juggle i'm not sure this was written the way my mind works so it wasn't for me but there is a ton of info and detail and it may be exactly what another mind can use

    Interesting combinations for a meadow style garden Perhaps this is for serious senior gardeners the mix between scientific plant names and common names confused me as I think they were a bit inconsistent at a few places

    First I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway but that does not impact my review I own a library of gardening books over 100 and this book belongs in my top two percent It has a generous amount of pictures as you can imagine from the title The text fully explained why the combinations work well together culturally and visually The author used combinations I've never seen together and gives further possible alternatives to use The down side to this book is the fact that I got it before ordering my plants for the year it increased my orders by a few hundred dollars Can't wait for my orders to be delivered I would recommend this book to both beginners to learn from and experienced gardeners for new plant combination ideas
