Landscape Plants of Arabia has been some thirty years in the making – the personal passion of its author as he built his landscaping business headquartered in Dubai. Julian Lee's meticulous notes, based on extensive practical experience on the ground, were gathered, catalogued and studiously verified. The massive job of providing no fewer than five images per plant was undertaken by a dedicated photographer, sometimes travelling extensively to locate the correct plant and variants. The whole was then painstakingly pieced together working closely with the editorial and design team, creating a remarkable work of reference that will prove invaluable for horticulturalists and amateur gardeners across the Middle East and beyond.
