Editorial Reviews

Review

If you are planning a pond or already have one which you want to refurbish, Peter Robinson offers an excellent guide to plants for ponds, rock and water features. Attractively illustrated and containing several interesting planting schemes, he offers his wealth of gardening experience in an easy to understand practical guide for novices and those more experienced alike. Describing marginals, oxygenators, deep water and bog plants in clear and concise fashion, you are guaranteed to choose the right plant for the situation and purpose. For once clearly explaining planting depths unlike similar books, Robinson offers a good reference point for all those seeking to add water to their garden. Propagation advice, pest and disease control and general pond maintenance are also included making this a one-stop handbook for pond-lovers. - Lucy Watson
