I expected to be buying a book about companion planting detailing which flowers would help which vegetables to grow and instead it was more of a treatise on adding cutting flowers to your market vegetable garden and general information about why this is a great thing for wildlife and pest control. Information on what flowers to add and some growing tips but not quite what I was looking for. That said, it is a beautiful book, well photographed, nicely written and I enjoyed reading it.
If you want a book on cut flowers in the garden, then this is useful (ish). Having searched for 'companion planting' and seeing this book come up straight away, I was hopeful that it would cover more detail (i.e. victim plants, plants that repel bugs, plants that aid others regarding nutrients, etc). But unfortunately it didn't. Very disappointed and poorer for it.
I thought this was about vegetable-flower companion planting, but it's really more about how to start a cut flower garden with other general garden information. The actual companion planting section is very short and limited in scope. I've returned the book and will be exploring other companion-planting titles.
This book had no real information in it for companion planting examples. It was pretty but if you want to know what flowers to plant with squash and which to plant with Broccoli, you won't find any of that info. It reviews things like insects and how to keep them happy in the garden sorry but that is not what I want to know with a title like this.
