But what unfortunate timing . . . to produce a new book in 2014, then announce that the lovely Wildside will be closed for all of 2015. Great shame.
Keith Wiley offers his knowledge of woodland planting throughout, and an informative and extensive directory helps you choose the right plant for the right place. I'm looking forward to putting some of the ideas I've obtained from this book into practice.
