Overview

This single volume encyclopedia is an expert reference tool for both beginner and serious gardener. It contains a comprehensive collection of the most valuable garden plants available today, including unusual and choice varieties as well as easy popular favorites.

The introduction explains the various forms of plant that we cultivate in our gardens - trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, biennials etc - and the factors that affect their performance.

Plants are then detailed in the A-Z section with essential cultural and descriptive information, plus approximately 1,500 magnificent color photographs to enable the reader to choose and identify suitable plants for every purpose. The catalogue is simple and clear; arranged by the correct botanical names by which they are widely known and sold. English names are included wherever they are commonly used and there is an index of these names so that plants can be found quickly and easily.

This encyclopedia provides a storehouse of ideas for pleasurable browsing and a mine of practical information for all gardeners.

This book was a nice surprise. It was a big hardcover book (great for the coffee table) that had a colorful photograph for each description. It also had many flowers that I didn't know even existed...BUT...I was looking for a specific flower and didn't find it. It also was a little confusing in it's format, ie putting the description with the picture. It listed the flowers by their latin name (only some included the common name). The only thing this book needed, besides the specific flower I was looking for, was a background of how the flower got it's common name and what the flower's meaning is when given, received, presented,etc. Overall, a must have for the price!
