Recognized for his expert knowledge of plants, garden writer Andrew Mikolajski calls to the reader’s attention some of his favorites. According to Mikolajski, clematis appeared in European herbals in the sixteenth century. Gardeners today have a choice of 230 species to brighten the landscape as shrubs and climbing vines. The author provides valuable information, including a directory of his favorite plants; how to select stock; options in planting (containers or against a wall); and tips on how to propagate, prune, and train them. There is a calendar of activities to assist both novice and experienced gardener through the year.
