9780903505529: The Flower Expert

Revised and updated, twice the size--and with over two and a half million copies sold! He's the world's best-selling gardening author and this is now the definitive manual on flower gardening. As big as The Houseplant Expert, the new, greatly expanded, and amazingly comprehensive Millennium Edition is packed with every detail, every secret, and every trick Hessayon has uncovered through years of experience. Filled with facts on everything from choosing the right type of flower to cultivate, to increasing stock, to learning the ins-and-outs of flower care, to the special growing details that only an "expert book" can provide, it's truly the only flower guide you'll ever need. With an incredible array of available flowers shown, and complete A to Z dictionaries of annuals and biennials, border perennials, rockery perennials, bulbs, and hobby plants, there is everything you need to select the perfect flowers. Color photos of every one, plus all the varieties of each--with choice of site, climate, propagation techniques, and more--make sure everything goes smoothly. But because things occasio nally do go wrong even in the most well-tended gardens, a special section on plant troubles contains a full "rogues' gallery" of potential problems--and ways to nip them in the bud. 256 pages (all in color), 7 1/4 x 9 1/2.

About the Author:

Dr Hessayon is the world’s best-selling horticultural author - his Expert series of gardening books have sold over 53 million copies. He has been honoured by Queen Elizabeth who created him an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for services to British horticulture. He has been honoured by a leading newspaper which included him in its list of ‘60 Truly Great Elizabethans’ because “he has taught millions of us how to garden with his wonderful do-it-yourself guides”. He has been honoured by Guinness World Records as “the top-selling living author of the 1990s”. He has been honoured at the National British Book Awards with the first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award.
 
The Expert style is hard to define. According to the Librarian of the Royal Horticultural Society “Dr Hessayon perfected a manner of presentation which has yet to be surpassed for clarity, intelligibility and ease of access”. According to The Times “he invented a formula of clear, uncluttered advice and illustrations with a superbly logical layout”.
 
There are 21 Expert titles in the series which have been enjoyed by gardeners all round the world. The House Plant Expert  has now passed sales of one million copies in both the U.S and Russia.
