The Botanical Garden: v.2 by Roger Phillips
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Bridging the gap between scientific texts and everyday horticultural books, this guide provides an insight into the relationships between garden plants and their environments, the history of plant development (as studied through fossils), and DNA studies, set to revolutionize classification. Volume 2 focuses on herbaceous plants, covering over 550 genera of annuals, biennials, perennials, bulbs, and aquatic plants. DNA studies proved vitally important in the classification of these plants, which had previously been imprecise. Starting with the ancient mosses and ferns, the book moves through all the flowering plants closing with a separate section on distinctive reeds and grasses. It should provide a useful aid to any aspiring gardener.
