Media reviews

"Rich and colorful. ... McIndoe occasionally waxes personal, but his style is assuredly instructional."

Publishers Weekly

"The shrub-curious will find a lot to ponder ... Plenty of pictures pack the pages, illustrating the chapters and sparking ideas of your own."

Kitsap Sun

"The author, managing director of Hillier Nurseries and Garden Centres in Hampshire, England, knows his shrubs. His advice on how to combine shrubs visually and culturally, on pruning, growing shrubs in containers, and planting for seasonal interest are so useful."

Pacific Northwest Magazine

"Home gardeners will appreciate this guide to the humble shrub with its glossy color photos and multitude of suggestions for staging and pairing plants."

American Reference Books Annual

"Explores garden styles that put shrubs front and center, along with choosing low ­maintenance plants. It's written by an award­-winning English plantsman, but the information is useful on this side of the pond, too."

Waterloo Cedar Falls Courier

"A gorgeous book! And oh so helpful."
