Award for Hardy heathers from the northern hemisphere
The Garden Media Guild’s awards announced on 29 November included the award of Reference Book of the Year to Hardy heathers from the northern hemisphere by Dr Charles Nelson. The judges’ comments were: ‘Given the vast library of horticultural reference works, it is an almighty challenge to produce one that adds something new while remaining accessible and yet attractive to handle and read. The winner stood out as indisputably important in covering a group of plants that are much loved by gardeners, whilst being an authoritative work of reference that will maintain its relevance for years to come.’
Hardy heathers from the northern hemisphere was published in December 2011 by Kew Publishing.
