'Conifers and Heathers will be welcomed by many readers for bringing together, in one publication, detailed information and a host of illustrations which cover both genera.  Whether your garden is a few paces wide or several acres, with acid or alkaline soil, Alan Toogood's extensive knowledge provides the stepping stones to planning your plot, and improving your soil, and to choosing and growing the plants most appropriate to your overall scheme.

An illustrated plant list describes, in note form, a range of plants from the ground covering junipers to the towering cedars, and complements longer sections that cover dwarf conifers, windbreaks, hedges and screens, the rock garden, and greenhouse, and the display of containerised plants.  Enthusiasts and casual 'evergreen' gardeners alike will find that this book is absorbing as well as being practical and essential for reference purposes.'
