Summary, etc.: "Since cities were first settled, urban dwellers have created gardens on their doorsteps, cultivating beauty and gaining delight from their efforts, however small the landscape. Urban Flowers explores the many ways in which you can bring colour and interest to a small city garden, whatever its location and whatever your taste. Garden designer Carolyn Dunster demonstrates hundreds of ways to make your outdoor space bloom. By using her colour-themed planting recipes, her charming projects, and palette of reliable urban plants, you too can turn the least promising corner into a thriving habitat for plants and wildlife. Find out how to: evaluate you city space and be clever with design; use plants and materials to reflect your style; follow easy practical projects and experiment with colour; choose plants suitable for your own urban location; prolong the growing season by drying or cutting flowers and saving seed for next year."--Back cover.
