One of The Experts series of gardening books by Dr. Hessyan. “The Tree & Shrub Expert” is filled with solid, usable, basic information. It is a good guide to over 800 trees and shrubs for the beginning gardener or anyone that wants a quick reference. The book is chock full of color photos and illustrations. There are a few references that do reflect the British focus of the book (ie: chalk soils, greengrocers) but these are limited.
