Review of RHS Encyclopedia of Conifers published in HTA news magazine
A review of Encyclopedia of Conifers is published in HTA news magazine, in September issue, 2012.
The review "A world of conifers" states that "The RHS Encyclopedia of Conifers by Derek Spicer of Kilworth Conifers and Aris G. Auders features both hardy and tropical cultivars, with details of the finder/originator, date and country of origin. It covers all of the world`s 615 conifer species, plus subspecies and varieties. Usefully, it also givers height and spread after 10 years.
Co-author Derek Spicer said, `Every time I have talked to a garden centre or nursery they ask where they can get a reference book about conifers. Our book contains every current conifer cultivar [around 8000], and with over 5000 great photos it provides a fantastic reference tool.`"
