Publisher Comments:

Any addition to the record-breaking line of Expert gardening books (over 40 million sold!) is cause enough for celebration, but even more so when it covers an almost entirely neglected area. With this complete reference on evergreens, written by the world's best- selling garden expert, Dr. D.G. Hessayon, whose books have sold over 40,000,000 copies, gardeners will rejoice at having new and fascinating ways to transform their landscapes during the "forgotten" part of the year: late autumn and winter. When spring and summer flowers fade, and the green lawn disappears under a coat of snow, the view from a living room window can look bleak. Exchange those empty beds, skeleton trees, and blackened stalks for plants that live the whole year long. And don't think that "evergreens" mean only conifers and leafy shrubs. There are also evergreen bulbs, grasses, border perennials, alpines, ferns, and climbers — and this book has them all. As with all the other entries in the series, you'll find a total guide to equipment, care, and breeds. Get the information needed to form an overview of your particular situation so you can choose the plants that best suit your garden's fertility and available space. Tables that cover each variant of evergreen give the Latin and common name; the best potential site and soil, information on pruning, and valuable notes that pertain to that particular type. Find planting methods, possible containers, and sources of supply. Troubleshoot problems before they become serious by becoming aware of destructive diseases and pests, mistakes in planting and pruning, and improper feeding and preparation. So let it snow — your garden will still grow!
