A GARDENING book needn't cost the earth to impart practical advice and helpful ideas for New Zealand conditions, as shown by The Colourful New Zealand Garden. This compact guide to using colour in garden design includes an easily followed explanation of the theory behind the colour wheel and the use of complementary and contrasting combinations.

Divided into seasons, it covers everything from spring bulbs to summer roses, autumn dahlias and scented winter colour. There's even a guide to colourful goof-proof plants, such as poppies, calendulas, nasturtiums and pelargoniums.

Author Dennis Greville is a well-known garden photographer, writer and landscape designer based in Christchurch.
