Scent, thoughtfully handled, can turn a good-looking garden into an unforgettable one. In this authoritative
reference book, Stephen Lacey explores the nature of scent, its sources in flowers and leaves, and its
imaginative use in the garden.
Almost 1,000 trees, shrubs, climbers, perennials, herbs, alpines, aquatics,
roses and conservatory plants are profiled, including practical information and many planting ideas for
fragrant features to ensure a succession of scents through the seasons. Andrew Lawson's evocative photographs
capture the beauty of scented plants.
