He stresses the importance of working out how much space you need to fill, in order to avoid ordering more seed than you can use. Then, he picks out examples of flower varieties in novel colours or with labour-saving properties. Finally, he looks at a seed collection with a ready-made planting scheme, designed to attract pollinating bees and butterflies.
