Synopsis

In Natural Companions, acclaimed garden writer Ken Druse presents recipes for perfect plant pairings with diverse species that look great together and bloom at the same time. The book is organised by theme within seasonal topics include colour, fragrance, foliage, grasses and edible flowers. Druse has teamed up with artist and photographer Ellen Hoverkamp to create over 200 images that are clean and paired down and completely unlike anything else of the shelves. Hoverlcamp records the leaves and flowers on a giant flatbed scanner and the results are images with remarkable depth and colour. The plants seem to jump off the pages. Another aspect to these images is that they capture precise moments in the life of a garden, showing what will grow and blossom with what. Druse has also included photographs of gardens so the reader can get a sense of how the flowers and plants will look while growing together. Packed with incredibly detailed writing on garden lore, history and practical information this book is the ultimate tool for all gardeners and lovers of plants and flowers.
