Whether read in the comfort of an armchair or while actually exploring a particular island, this beautifully illustrated work of reference is an ideal guide both for the professional horticulturist and keen amateur. Written from an historical perspective, the book also gives an up to date description of the indigenous plants peculiar to each island and examines the crucial differences in climate and soil. It also details the origins of the Botanical Garden and its importance in the protection of rare species. A wide selection of gardens is featured which provides a real feel for the diversity of plant life in the region as well as shedding new light on the complexity and beauty of the Caribbean as a whole.
