By far, the most comprehensive source of reliable information.
The book offers both amateur and professional horticulturists a wealth of theoretical and practical information on the potential garden value of a very extensive and varied range of over 8,000 plants, half of which are accompanied by excellent color photos.

The book is arranged into several areas, part practical dictionary, part variety specific (ie roses, orchids, etc.) part encyclopedia complete with photos arranged according to size, color, season of interest, cultural requirements, & growth characteristics.

A single collection of years of study from renowned British
& American horticulturists. A "Must Have" for any serious gardening enthusiast
