re-publication of this renowned plantsman's books (his
Rose Book was reviewed recently) ensures his work lives on after
his death in 2003 as a resource for the keen gardener.
This classic covers
geology (albeit British) and the historical introduction of alpine
plants. It has practical advice on the choice of suitable plants
and details how to create a rock garden. Most of the plates are
in black and white but some illustrations, among them the author's
own, are in colour.
A book for the enthusiast.
