The aromatherapy craze has made clear to millions of Americans what noted garden writer Suzy Bales has always known: scent has an immense influence on our moods and well-being. While most gardening books explain how to plant for color, "A Garden of Fragrance explores a unique approach that mixes fragrances to create utterly enchanting gardens that smell as good as they look. Whether you want a sweetly romantic garden, and exotic, powerfully scented garden, or a garden that perfumes the evening air, here you'll find everything you need to create a glorious garden that pleases all the senses.
"A Garden of Fragrance explores the aromatic character of all your favorite plants: Seductresses are heavily perfumed flowers whose scent comes out to greet you before you even see them. They include roses, gardenias, hyacinths, lilacs, and lilies. At least one Seductress should always be in bloom in your garden.?Come-Closers, such as snowdrops, pinks, and violets, are more subtle flowers that share their fragrance only with those willing to hold them close.Moonlighters dispense their perfume from early evening into the night, allowing for warm, heady evenings in the garden. Moonflowers, honeysuckle, and petunias are the garden's night owls.Shaggy Dogs, which include many herbs, hide aromas in theirleaves. Line a path with these, and you'll be rewarded if you brush against them as you walk by.The eccentric Rogues include the "love'em or hate'em varieties, the pungent "nose twisters, the "dual personalities, and the "stinkers. Their beauty is best glimpsed from a distance.
Suzy Bales shows you how to increase the aromatic impact of your garden no matter what the season, from spring's daffodils to summer's roses to fall's sweet autumn joy to winter's witch hazels. Ahe provides detailed advice on how to design, plant, and maintain a garden that's both visually appealing and romantically fragrant, including charts on essential oils, plants aromatic properties, and winning scent combinations.
Whether you're a new gardener or are redesigning your existing garden, "A Garden of Fragrance will help you develop a beautiful, scent-filled garden.
