About this book

This volume reveals the extraordinarily rich diversity of trees, shrubs, flowering plants and cacti that will flourish in regions where summers are hot and dry, and the winters mild and wet. There are descriptions of more than 300 plants, most of them readily obtainable: Chinaberry trees with fragrant lilac flowers in spring, dark green twisted carobs, and beautiful red-flowered climbing lilies. Many of the subjects are illustrated in colour photographs. Coded information at the start of each entry should enable gardeners to make the best choices when confronted with the bewildering array of plants on offer. Hugh Latymer also offers a variety of garden designs, always encouraging imaginative solutions. He draws on 20 years of gardening experience on the island of Mallorca.
