The Bedding Plant Expert does what it says on the tin. An interesting and fairly comprehensive look at the history of bedding, what plants have been used and what plants are most suitable. Bedding was massively popular years ago but fell out of favour during the chic 80s and 90s. As a way of introducing colour, quickly and cheaply into a garden, bedding is likely to enjoy a revival during these credit squeezed times.

What a great book! Loads of detail about the things you really need to know. So much better than the average glossy 'picture' book about gardening. I reckon this book would pay for itself in no time in increased yields of a better quality crop from your allotment or kitchen garden.

It gives you the knowledge and confidence to try things you wouldn't otherwise tackle. I'm going to try to espalier some apple saplings based on this book. And also try growing other vegetables than the usual spuds, onions and carrots.

Excellent, can't recommend it highly enough.

This new edition of a core text for students of horticulture is welcomed. The addition of colour plates is helpful and the layout has generally improved. I think the book does a difficult job well as the subject is huge and it must be very difficult to decide what to leave out and how much depth to go to. I'm hoping it will help me with the RHS Advanced Cerificate exam.
