Christopher Brickell. The Gardener's Companion: An Essential Guide to Plants and Planting.
First American Edition 1995 in association with The Royal Horticultural Society. Crown Publishers, New York, New York. Hardcover in Great condition.
The author, Christopher Brickell, draws on 40 years of experience as the director of The Royal Horticultural Society including a wealth of planting advice and useful tips. Expert advice is offered by season, selection and maintenance of trees, shrubs, climbers, perennials, bulbs, alpines, annuals, and greenhouse plants. This book is for a seasoned gardener or an enthusiastic beginner. I love the side notes like plant propagation or gentian hunting in China. There is always more to learn in the garden and this is a potent book of advice for any green thumb.
