Covering palms, cordylines, phormiums, astelias and cycads this book is probably the most detailed and comprehensive guide for UK gardeners wanting to grow a palm (or similar). Content ranges from the familiar to the (almost) unheardof. Some of the photos are surprisingly poor for a gardening book, not in terms of the quality of the photo but of the plant. I suppose that's what comes from photgraphing rare plants. Nevertheless, a recommended book and an enjoyable browse.
