    What a perfect little book and the ideal stocking filler for a gardening friend. Choosing one plant for each week of the year is such as great idea and the author has picked a wonderful group of plants. You can tell by the way it is written that Louise is passionate and knowledgeable about each and every one of these gorgeous plants.

    A really wonderful little book full of information and written by a knowledgable and passionate plantswoman. I first met Louise at a NGS garden opening where she was selling some of her unusual plants and so when I saw that she had written a book I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it- it didn’t disappoint!
    A perfect present for fellow gardeners.
