Hi, Just started studying horticulture and garden design, im looking for a guide to species of plants book, anyone recommend any good ones?
There are literally hundreds of good and even excellent books out there - may I suggest you try your public library to start with, then you can see what sort of thing you do and don't want? Then yu can begin to buy as you feel happy with them.
Also check in a charity shop.
I've got a lot of the Hessayon Expert series from charity shops, anything by the RHS is good and often available.
The RHS What plant where, and also What plant when are two good reference books - small handy size, colour picks and organised into colour, season or ideal planting location.
