A Review of Tropical Plant, Palm and Flower Books
(A Complete Listing)
The following are merely my thoughts on a few of the botanical books available to enhance one’s awareness of tropical and sub-tropical gardening. Many can be purchased through Amazon Book – some for as little as a penny!
Amazon and I use different criteria in evaluating books. Mine are “practicality, readability, quality of information contained, photography and – most of all – application to outdoor tropical gardening. Hence our ratings are sometimes different.
My ratings are thus: 5 palms – excellent, a “need to have”; 4 palms – Very good, certainly a fine addition to your tropical plants library; 3 palms – Good, nice with substantive information and a fine complementing book; 2 palms – Marginal, some good data but perhaps dated, poorly laid out, not fully researched or simply difficult to digest; 1 palm – Not recommended
