A recommendation for 'New Trees'
In an online article published by The Browser.com ("Writing Worth Reading"), the well-known garden designer Arabella Lennox-Boyd recommends her top five books for inspiring gardening reading. They are The Education of a Gardener, by Russell Page; New Trees; In Your Garden by Vita Sackville-West; The Hillier Manual of Trees and Shrubs, and Gardens from the Air, by Franco Migliorini and Luigi Latini. I'm not familiar with the latter, but its a very interesting and original concept, and one to look into. It is an honour, however, to have my own book linked to those of Russell Page and Vita Sackville-West, and The Hillier Manual is an essential. Thank you, Arabella!
