Here is the second of this month’s book giveaways.
And what a smashing book it is too. I would have nabbed a copy for review if I had the time to write one and my gardening book-shelves weren’t already overspilling. ‘The Splendour of the Tree‘ was published two days ago by Frances Lincoln at £25.00. This is what they have to say about it:
Written by Dr. Noel Kingsbury – a world-class expert on plants and the environment – ‘The Splendour of the Tree’ celebrates the wonder, mystery, beauty and utility of the tree. It pays homage to 100 key species of tree – chosen for their cultural, economic or historical significance and their importance in the natural world – and includes an indispensable cultivation section that advises on the care and selection of trees for the home garden. The lively text analyses the particular characteristics of each tree and the specific role that it plays within the ecosystem and human environment. Breathtaking, specially commissioned photography by Andrea Jones – one of the world’s foremost garden photographers – skillfully captures the nuances of every featured tree. From exquisite close-up detail shots to images of impeccable orchards in bloom, her photographs are both beautiful and informative.
