Gardening with Shrubs and Trees

by Stanley B. Whitehead

The Garden Book Club, 1957 [First Edition], colour and black and white photographic plates, hardcover, dust-jacket

Very Good Condition, some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing to edges and corners, some discolouration to edges, dust-jacket shows some edge and shelf wear with rubbing, chipping, small tears and creasing to edges and covers,  (see photographs)

"It opens by tracing the history and introduction of many of the shrubs and trees that lend so much to present-day garden colour and gaiety.  It illuminates their qualities, not only of blossom, but of form, habit of growth, foliage, bark and fruit, and tells how they may be exploited effectively in garden design and landscaping.
In four long final chapters, the most meritorious shrubs and trees for each of the four seasons are discussed and described in the order of their display throughout the full year.  Only the most garden-worthy plants have been selected from a point of view of their hardiness and willingness to grow under temperature conditions as well as their beauty."
