Bring the soothing atmosphere of the monastery cloister to your garden or transport the countryside to your back door with your very own wildflower meadow. With chapters to show how to use colour in your garden to the most tranquil effect and how to make best use of scented plants, (this book) has something to satisfy all the senses.
