Top critical review
Dated by the black and white pictures
on 4 July 2017
Beth Chatto has a very engaging writing style and there is a wealth of information in the book. However it is an old book, so has only a few black and white photos in the centre. If like me you are a novice gardener then the plant names don't mean much without supporting pictures. I have given this book to my horticultural friend who is really enjoying it. I have bought Drought Resistant Planting also by Beth Chatto which suits me much better as it's full of beautiful colour pictures to bring the text to life.
