Review Text

  • By Anthony B. Whittle on 1 May 2011

    I have collected a number of clematis books over the years and this one is the best. Packed with information and a wide coverage of the subject coupled with plenty photographs and a most pleasing presentation make it a bit special for me,hard to beat this one.

    My husband isn't what I would call a gardener even though he enjoys his garden. Clematis are his new passion and this book graphically explains just how these plants should be planted and treated thereafter. A great book.
