Colour By Design by Nori and Sandra Pope is an erudite, wordy (in a good way) and inspirational book.
In discussing colour in the garden they refer to music, architecture, interior design, physics and psychology....but there are also some very practical tips like planting a young lupin beside a clump of mature ones to prolong the flowering season.
I had the pleasure of visiting Hadspen when they were gardeners there. It was really special. They have returned to their native Canada, and the Hadspen Estate is up for sale, so I feel lucky to have seen it when I did, and am glad to have the book to remind me of it and inspire me.
