Ian Cooke will be well known to many of you having written several gardening books as well as being a garden designer and RHS Judge. Ian also has his own Garden Blog - Pampas2Palms where you can catch up with his gardens both in the UK and USA.
Featuring guides to exotic plants as well as advice on propagation and tips to get the best out of your plants Ian's book should be a must have to anyone growing exotics in the UK (and further afield).
Illustrated with pictures of the plants themselves and also a number of well designed exotic gardens the book covers larger and smaller gardens. We have had our own copy of this book since it was released and can confirm it is an enjoyable read.
