Over the past fifty years the Experts have dominated the gardening book world.Many millions of readers in Britain and overseas have turned to them for instruction, identification, plant history or just an armchair read in winter. Most gardeners have at least one, but very few have collected them all - an average Expert reader has two or three titles.People have their favourite Expert, but it would be nice if they could have a taste of the most interesting bits, and who knows better where to find them than the man who wrote them. The Best of Experts is Dr Hessayon's selection of his personal favourites from every one of the twenty four titles.This tasting ranges from the original 1959 vintage to the 2009 Green Garden Expert nouveau.It's a collection as varied as the subject of gardening can be - readers are given a taste of every aspect of gardening under the sun which will leave them with a thirst for more.
Dr Hessayon's best-selling guides have had an unparalleled influence on gardening over the past 50 years. There are over 51 million copies in print. In 1999 he received a Guinness World Record Award as 'Britain's best-selling living author of the 1990s'.
