Fantastic book, best investment we have made. Lots of fantastic photos and information on conifers. Let's hope this brings the conifers back into the gardens, as there is so much out there for every garden. We have been to Derek's for some specimens, as we are setting up a 3 acre field with rare and unusual plants; known him for a while, nice man.

Here at Swines Meadow Farm Nursery at Market Deeping near Peterborough, we are trying to encourage people to try different plants - there is a new world out there. We go on holiday and see some lovely new plants; yes, lots cannot grow here but, amazingly, there are some that can, that's the pleasure of experimenting. Let's just keep growing and gardening.

I remember a great visit to Swine's Meadow not so long ago, and I see you have a good range of hellebores this year.
