Media reviews:

It is perhaps among the most informative of the Botanical Magazine Monograph series and can be strongly recommended not only to heather enthusiasts but as an invaluable reference work for horticulturists, botanists, botanical historians, students of floristics and ecologists. I.K. Ferguson, 2012

I found myself sitting up in bed until the early hours of the morning captivated by various sections. Terry Underhill, Heathers 9, Handbook of the Heather Society, 2012
