As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Natural Companions by Ken Druse
This book came out in 2012, and the subtitle is The Garden Lover's Guide to Plant Combinations.
In this book, plantsman and garden writer Ken Druse presents his time-tested recipes for plant pairings. Some plants are beautiful all are on their own, but some really shine when set beside another plant. Plant pairings are also a wonderful way to complement bloom times or foliage. There is so much to consider.
Ken smartly organizes his book by theme within seasons. He covers color, fragrance, foliage, grasses, and edible flowers, just to name a few. In addition, his book shows the power of his plant combinations in real gardens in a variety of growing zones through photography.
Like all of Ken’s books, this book is filled with a ton of horticultural wisdom and guidance, in addition to garden lore, humor, and practicality.
This book is 256 pages of perfect plant partners for your garden.
