Roy Lancaster worked at the University of Cambridge Botanic Gardens and the Hillier Nurseries in Hampshire before becoming the first curator of the Sir Harold Hillier Gardens and Arboretum in 1970. Since 1980 he has been a freelance writer, plant explorer, and broadcaster. He has written many books, including What Houseplant Where and What Perennial Where (also published by DK), and regularly contributes to various magazines, including the Royal Horticultural Society's journal The Garden.From Library Journal:
This resource book will provide guidance for gardeners who are making plant-purchasing decisions for garden sites by specific size of plants, soil conditions needed, amount of sunlight or shade, growing position, foliage color, season-specific features, growing sites, and special categories (e.g., fragrance, hedging screening, and berries for birds). An index grid leads the reader to a section of the book with specific plants for the category, e.g., perennials, climbers, shrubs, conifers, and trees, selected in the grid. The text by leading British garden writer Lancaster is expertly done. Along with hundreds of excellent color photos that illustrate the selected plant, the grower is given individual information on plant size, hardiness, and light requirements. While this guide seems most useful as a circulating book, some will think it should be relegated to the reference collection as it has the colorful DK reference aura. Regardless of where you keep it, this volume fills a niche in the plant collections in most libraries.?Dale Luchsinger, Athens Area Technical Inst., Ga.
