Gertrude Jekyll's Color Schemes for the Flower Garden

This magnificent book includes a preface by Richard Bisgrove, an authority on Jekyll and her work. More than 35 superb full-color photographs of gardens supersede the black-and-white pictures of earlier editions and the text is enhanced by delicate illustrations of some of Miss Jekyll's favorite plants. Her plans have been redrawn and interpreted in color and are supplemented by hitherto unpublished designs.

This manual is about the role of colour, in relation to other attributes of plants, in the making of gardens. It demonstrates how Gertrude Jekyll composed inspired garden pictures, which, with their closely-related colour patterns and subtle gradations of hue, were a major influence on the development of English garden design. In this modern edition, colour photographs replace the black-and-white pictures of earlier editions and the text is enhanced by delicate illustrations of some of Gertrude Jekyll's favourite plants. Her planting plans have been redrawn and interpreted in colour and supplemented by hitherto unpublished designs. The revisions should make it more accessible for today's reader.
Gertrude Jekyll created over 400 gardens in England, Europe and America. She holds a unique place in the making of English gardens and has exerted immense influence on good garden planting throughout the world. Her Colour Schemes for the Flower Garden, first published in 1908, was one of the most influential gardening books of the 20th century. She died in 1932. Richard Bisgrove is the director of the Landscape Management degree course at Reading University. He has designed gardens in Britain and the United States and lectures internationally on the history of garden design and on the work of Gertrude Jekyll.
