The reference series is headed by the best-selling Seed Search, begun in 1996, now in its 8th edition. This unique book led to two innovative titles: Seed Sowing and Growing Success and Plant Names A-Z, which has become Plant Synonyms and Plant Common-Botanical Names.
In 2000, Black Magic and Purple Passion was launched to much acclaim. The first edition was a volume of 300 dark plants with 70 photographs and is now in its fourth edition as an eBook. Karen has described an unprecedented 3,000 black plants.
Our colour series was released to represent all colours used in the garden. Each book offers a blueprint of which plants to choose and how to use them. Colour is presented in a new innovative light. In 2007, the first title of the Design series, Lifestyle Gardening, was published.
