As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Today's book recommendation: The Hillier Manual of Trees & Shrubs by John Hillier
This book is considered a classic in horticultural literature.
The best part about it remains all of the notes that were compiled by members of the Hillier family. Among all of them, they had an amazing amount of direct experience growing plants and assessing their performance in different regions.
Over 10,500 plants representing more than 650 genera are described in detail, making it an indispensable guide for any keen gardener or botanist.
