A useful book
on 3 August 2008
This is a very useful book, with clear and precise information about the species it covers.
My only 'but' is that it is heavily biased towards alcaline gardening, while there are many places in the Mediterranean that are quite acid.
I would like the book to be larger, to have more photos and, especially, to cover more trees: given enough water (and the right way) the number of species one can cultivate in summer-dry regions is quite surprising.
The photos are very good, but they do not cover every species, and there are several ideas that may be useful for gardeners and even architects.
Overall a good buy.
