Today's fashion for exoticism in the garden shows no sign of waning and with global warming bringing higher temperatures throughout the year, the possibility of growing these exotic plants becomes a reality. With many plants hardier than at first imagined, the trend for supposedly less hardy plants is growing in response to the demand for something different, something imposing, something which will add instant structure to a garden. Top choice of these are the palms and palm-like plants such as cordylines, phormiums and agaves. Experienced grower Martyn Graham offers his selection of the best varieties to grow, giving sound advice on acquisition, cultivation requirements and hardiness ratings. He also offers planting ideas for tropical jungles, Mediterranean gardens or container arrangements. With palms and other spiky-leaved plants adding instant glamour to a garden, this book is a timely addition to the tropical gardening range of books. Clearly illustrated and well laid-out, it is an intelligent examination of a newly popular genus for ordinary gardens. - Lucy Watson
