    The following was received via email:

    I am working in a garden center and would like to know what would be a good reference book for customers to look at for information on plants, flowers, trees etc. This book should be durable as it would get a lot of use by customers and show what they are looking for and some information about the plant etc.

    Thanks

    At the Shop in the Garden , we have used the Readers Digest A-Z encyclopedia of Garden Plants for several years. It has stood the wear and tear remarkably well and is an excellent reference. We also use the Roger Phillips and Martin Rix series on bulbs, perrennials and shrubs, Hillier's manual of trees and shrubs and the Clearview book on Clematis. Hope rthis helps you!
