|CLEMATIS THE MONTANAS
A Book For Gardeners
by John Howells
Every garden needs a Montana and, as this book demonstrates, there is a Montana for every garden.
This book is for the gardener, whether beginner or expert, who wishes to learn more about the general features of this group of clematis. The author explains which montanas are currently available, their strengths and weaknesses and which are best suited to an individual gardener's purpose. Clear advise is provided on how to cultivate this group of plants and how best to display them. Coverage is also given about each plant's background and often fascinating history.
Profusely illustrated throughout with superb colour examples (many taken from the author's own garden), the reader will soon realise the potential of these strikingly beautiful plants. As an experienced hands-on gardener, the author has grown most varieties of clematis over the years and is well-placed to evaluate the characteristics of each individual plant and share his findings in an unbiased and straightforward manner with the readers of this attractive and immensely practical book.
