The Mystique of Boxwood

Most gardeners are at least generally aware of boxwood, but few are aware of that it is Man's oldest ornamental plant. They know of its reputation, but would be hard put to identify any of the 300 cultivars. 

Boxwood is a familiar neighbour in the Eastern United States, particularly in the middle Atlantic area, but even their boxwood is not well understood.

This book is for all of these gardeners. It is a distillation of the body of knowledge which has accumulated over the years, presented in a useful and understandable form.

It tells all you need to know to successfully select, propagate, and care for boxwood plants. It gives the authoritative descriptions of the most popular boxwoods.

Well illustrated with clear colour photographs.

Condition: Very good, slight shelf wear.
