More About the Author

In 1958 Be Your Own Gardening Expert started a major innovation in gardening books. In 2008 the Expert guides celebrated their 50th anniversary and the 50 millionth copy in print.They had become the bestselling gardening books in history.

Their creator Dr D G (Dave) Hessayon, the son of a Cypriot landowner, was born in 1928 and grew up in Manchester. He read Botany at Leeds University, where he gained his BSc degree. In 1950 he travelled to the United States, working as the editor of a small town newspaper. In 1953 he went to Ghana as a Research Fellow at the University College before returning to Manchester to obtain his PhD in soil ecology. In 1955 he accepted a position as chief scientist with Pan Britannica Industries, becoming chairman in 1972. It was here that Dr Hessayon formulated the idea for his Expert guides to gardening.

A steady stream of Experts followed the publication of Be Your Own Gardening Expert, each one maintaining the basic formula of down-to-earth writing with pictures, charts and photographs. In the British Bestsellers list for the 1980s there were two Experts in the Top 10. In 1993 Dr Hessayon received the first-ever Lifetime Achievement 'Oscar' at the National British Book Awards. He was also awarded the Royal Horticultural Society Gold Veitch Memorial Medal for his outstanding contribution to the advancement and improvement of the science and practice of horticulture.In 1999 Dr Hessayon was awarded a Guinness World Record Certificate for being Britain's 'bestselling non-fiction author of the 1990s'. In 2012 he was included in the Daily Mail list of '60 truly great Elizabethans' for 'teaching millions of us how to garden'.

Despite his resolve to stay out of the limelight there have been further awards along the way - a Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Garden Media Guild, three Honorary Doctorates and an OBE in 2007. There are over 28 Expert titles in 22 languages, and in Britain their sales continue to dominate the gardening paperback lists. The Vegetable & Herb Expert continues to be the No.1 bestseller. Now an active octogenarian, Dr Hessayon has more gardening Experts in the pipeline and he serves as the Design and Editorial Consultant for the non-gardening Experts. Retirement has to wait.

"I would say that the Expert Books have been the biggest innovation in gardening publications since the death of William Robinson in 1938" - Dr Brent Elliott (Librarian, Royal Horticultural Society)

3.0 out of 5 stars Latest edition 30 Dec 2013
By mc2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was purchased to replace the earlier edition I have owned for many years. Although interesting, the content has been dumbed down and it is no longer as useful as a refence book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love plants and flowers 30 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having had to reduce the amount of gardening I do, I now enjoy displays of flowers in my home even more. This book is as it states, 'expert' at giving information needed to maximise floral displays thus enhancing the appearance of your home. Choosing flowers and foliage with a longer 'vase life' is an absolute boon of a section. IT is money saving advice, and helps increase the length of time your flower arrangement will look good. The book is beautifully illustrated and information is very easy to find. Advice on choosing the right indoor plant is also exceptionally helpful. From foliage plants to those which flower, this provides the basic detailed advice for maintaining them, so that they will thrive throughout the year. There is such a selection of cut flowers and indoor plants available all year round I would recommend this book very highly because it helps so much with making the right choice and avoiding disappointment.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK! 10 Jun 2013

I thought as it was the new 2013 version it would be updated and modernised from previous books. It is still very 70's/80's with its planting and flower arranging sections.
