Product description

Review

“Whittaker’s engaging writing style and his personal observations make this book a pleasure to read. . . . Recommended for all gardeners in the applicable zones who are interested in trying these plants.” —Library Journal

“This book provides a great introduction to the subject, but even the expert will find much to entertain and enlighten.” —The Garden

“A great guide for bamboo-lovers, who get 175 pages with photos and glossary. For bamboo-haters, Whittaker outlines three ways to control or eliminate out-of-control bamboo.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

“One of the best written, most beautifully illustrated and most useful book for people interested in adding bamboo to their garden. Even die-hard bamboo collectors who think they know it all will find something new and interesting to learn, and they will definitely enjoy the stunning photographs.” —Bamboo and More
