Shrubs Can Provide the Perfect Solution
This new work from Timber Press is a good addition to their 2019 titles.
'Shrubs – Discover the perfect plant for every place in your garden', is another example of a specialist gardening title by this leading publisher.
25 Chelsea Gold Medals
The author, Andy McIndoe is well known to many readers from his previous post at Hillier Nurseries, where he led them to an incredible 25 Chelsea Gold Medals.
This is his third book about shrubs, the first for Hillier, as one of their excellent Garden Guides in 2005, then “The Creative Shrub Garden” in 2014, and now this new title.
Using Shrubs Creatively
This is a book intended for the amateur reader, and perhaps may help to convince many of them to use shrubs more creatively, or to branch out and choose a more unusual shrub.
The book is divided into four main sections – care and planting, shrubs for 'challenging growing conditions' including prolonged drought, shrubs for restricted planting spaces and finally shrubs with desirable characteristics.
Benefits for Design Studios
The book is priced at £23.00, which feels like a good price for a lot of information, and some great pictures. It will be a useful addition to many design studios, to help clients choose plants.
In garden centres, this will an ideal guide for shoppers, or just as a gift for a new gardener starting out on the shrub voyage of discovery.
