About this title

Synopsis:

This book encompasses a vast range of plants grown on a domestic or commercial scale in private gardens or present in specialist and botanical collections. They are plants grown for ornament, for amenity or for economic use, and they include a selection of cultivars. 50,000 plants are described, including many hundreds of cultivars. It gives concise botanical accounts of species in cultivation throughout the world, in line with the latest taxonomic thinking and it gives practical advice on how to grow every plant described. There are over 500 articles on horticultural science and practice, newly commissioned from leading authorities.

From Library Journal:

The RHS set has wonderful descriptions of, and cultural information for, virtually all the world's garden plants. It also includes biographies as well as excellent details on topics like plant nutrition and gardening within specific countries. Although sparsely illustrated, this is the ultimate reference for large and horticultural libraries. The one-volume Shorter Dictionary is more manageable in size and price for small and medium-sized public libraries; it gives lucid definitions of gardening terms and very good descriptions of a great variety of plants.

Store Description

The Reader's Corner is such fun,it's too bad you have to buy our books on line. We have eight foot tall outside bookshelves across the entire front of the store. There is a money slot in the door for night sales, which go to support National Public Radio. Inside, which can be too crowded at times, are surprisingly good books, only 1% are ever listed on-line. We also sell records, music cd's, comic books, mags, computer software and games. Best of all is the found art decorating every spare spot. The motto on the front door: NO SHOOTING, NO SMOKING, NO MOONING THE MANAGEMENT.
