Format: Paperback
I have some previous Titchmarsh books and this one lacks his usual friendly, down-to-earth tone. It made me feel it was ghost-written or cobbled together by a team of garden writers instead.

Much general guidance is duplicated in numerous basic gardening manuals - what I wanted was more information about each type of shrub, with a comprehensive range of varieties. It is unclear why certain named varieties are included, while others (of the same shrub) - which may be reliable and more readily available - are excluded.

I am so disappointed I shall take this to the charity shop and stick with my old guides - Hillier, RHS and even good old "Expert" Dr Hessayon!

Up to Alan's usual standard, this is a brilliant book with loads of information about flowering shrubs. As well as being a good read, it will give you inspiration for your garden and will be referred to again and again. I'd definitely recommend this book to experienced and new gardeners alike.

As we are new to a garden my husband needed some advice on pruning the many shrubs in the back garden. He loved the Alan Titchmarsh general gardening book I bought for him at Christmas so this seemed the obvious choice. It's informative and written in a way that is easy to understand.
