Black Magic and Purple Passion by Karen Platt (ISBN-13: 978-0952881056) shows all you need to know about black plants. Magic and passion in the garden are created with over 2,750 dark plants. Dramatic foliage and dusky flowers create mystery and add sex appeal to the garden. Detailed cultural care and Platt's enticing descriptions and photographs enable the gardener to plant black creatively. Over 425 color photographs. Platt is the founder of the International Black Plant Society and the first woman to have had a nursery specializing in black plants. She has won awards on both sides of the Atlantic for her black garden designs.

LIFE IN THE 1500'S in England:-
The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence the saying, Dirt poor. The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet, so they spread thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until, when you opened the door, it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entranceway. Hence the saying a thresh hold.

If you know the name of the plant you wish to see, you can ask Google and get information; otherwise for the public this website may help you choose your plants using foliage, shape and seed/fruit as well as flower photos before you buy them mailorder directly from the nursery / seed company that has not donated the use of their photos!

With free advertising of their plants, I am asking for photos from the public / nurseries / seed companies / suppliers in the UK from August 2009 to July 2015, or any other country in the European Union, who would supply plants / seeds mailorder direct to the public in the UK and/or the rest of the world. This also applies to American nurseries for America, Chinese Nurseries for China, etc since the plants from most other countries in the world can also be grown in the UK as well as their own country; providing the appropriate growing conditions are stated.
