A sister publication to Trees: Their Use, Management, Cultivation and Biology, this wide-ranging and fascinating book is packed full with both biological information about plants as well as practical and instructional advice about how to grow and nurture them. It covers soft plants, shrubs and woody climbers and discusses a wide range of both British native and exotic plants found elsewhere throughout the world. This volume will be of particular relevance to students of professional horticulture for it provides an introduction to the diversity of plants and their multifarious management requirements.
