Colour planning principles

Previous - Next

The practice of good colour arrangement in gardening is full of delightful potentialities. In the foregoing pages it has only been possible to put forward some general principles and their application in one or two more or less definite schemes. But to any one who delights in the beauty of flowers, and has, either by natural endowment, or by the education of perception, acquired some knowledge of how to use colour, they may serve as an early guide or substructure on which to build further, according to their own desire or inclination. In any case, the study and practice of good use of colour in the garden cannot fail to be a source of abiding interest and unfailing inspiration.
