"The word "definitive" makes me nervous, but once you have The Gardener's Book of Colour, I should be surprised if you ever needed another book on the subject." - Ursula Buchan, Sunday Telegraph "As well thought out and thorough as it is possible such a book to be ... but of course, it is the big photographs in the book that make it special. And not just because some of them are captivatingly beautiful, but because they are all organically related to the text."- The Oldie "He talks with reassuring simplicity on such basic yet essential matters as light saturation, tones and colour distribution, so that newcomers to gardening, as well as old hands, will find themselves understanding the huge and potentially complex subject of colour in the garden. This is a constructive book, and beautiful, too." - Hortus
