Review quote

THE guide to finding that rare plant, that plant you spotted in a magazine or on television, or read about but couldn't find in the local garden centre. A massive research project launched by the RHS in 1987, this is now THE book for serious gardeners searching for that missing plant. With over 65,000 entries, it offers a nursery for every possible plant, their name, address and telephone number listed together with mail order availability if applicable. No longer do you need to spend hours on the phone ringing around in fruitless searches. This book will quickly and easily give you the answer. From widely found to very scarce, all plants are covered with those generally easily available marked accordingly. Whilst it may take time to get used to the coding system, once mastered, it opens up a whole new world of plant hunting for gardeners. And who knows, that one-off trip to collect a long sought-after plant may result in more than you bargained for with a car full of horticultural gems gleaned from an otherwise unknown nursery. Updated annually, it is an up-to-the-minute reference to locate particular plants and a vital addition to every serious gardeners' bookcase. - Lucy Watsonshow more
