About this book

Conifers are the perfect choice for ground cover, shrubs, or trees in almost any garden. Evergreen and always architecturally interesting, they're also drought, pest-, and disease-resistant, and rarely have any demanding cultivation needs. This book provides everything needed to know about choosing and growing the right conifer.
