This weighty book is my bible. So much so that I had the first edition out, used it so much that this now stays well thumbed and tattered in my sun-lounge, and the I bought the new revised ,two-tomed edition to sit on my book-shelf .

It is what it says, an A-Z of garden plants., but what I really like about it is that it has short, easy to read sections on culture, hardiness, pests and deseases, but most importantly , propogation.

There are plenty of photos in here for identification.

Another helpful idea is that in the appropriate places there are the common names ,or alternate names, which re-direct you to the correct (at that time! ) section.

A book I wouldn't be without, and spend a lot of time just browsing. it comes in handy when I'm checking out exchange lists, looking to see if they'd be suitable in my location.
