A substantial introduction covers the basics of plant care, focusing especially on planting and pruning the keys to success with flowering shrubs.

In addition, each entry includes suggestions for planting combinations and tips for pruning and care, ensuring that your plants will continue to reach their full potential year-round. The fresh, clear design is easy to follow, and full-colour photography throughout enables quick identification of plants.

This easy-to-use guide will give you the confidence you need to raise healthy, attractive flowering shrubs.
