In Scent Magic -a book which is at once romantic and extremely practical- plantswoman, designer and garden-maker extraordinaire Isabel Bannerman immerses the reader in the luscious smells of the fragrant garden through a warmly written account of her year's gardening; and combines this with an encyclopaedic reference work of the best aromatic plants to grow throughout the seasons.

Whether evoking the freshly baked sponge smell emanating from wisteria, describing `Stanwell Perpetual' as "the kind of rose that would taste of apricot and raspberries swirled together", or championing the magic of the Himalayan cowslip, "scented profoundly and deliciously like the dark vault of a Damascus spice merchant" the glorious poetry of her descriptions is supplemented by personal memories and a lifetime's experience of gardening and plant cultivation.
