About the Book:

Gardening is being pursued in a very unscientific way in India. That is because the Malis still call the shots. The information available in gardening books is relevent to the temperate climates of Europe with no consideration shown to the climates of tropical countries like India. The vacuum existing between the books and the needs of India is too obvious. In between spaces are being filled with heavy botanical information.<-p>

Gardening is an art of co-relations of vision and of creativity; of seasons and scenes and of spirit and of mind. Gardening in India needs to be rescued from catalogue guidance. Hopefully this book will do that by bridging the gulf.<-p>

An outstanding publications of tropical plants meant for home gardening. This book follows the plants seasonwise and gives practical tips on whom gardening at the level of the amaeur gardener. Guidance is available on Seasonal plants,Shrubs, Flowering trees, Climbers, Cacti, Succulents and most fascinating of the subjects on Decorative and Ornamental Gardening.<-p>
