Reader's note

A wonderful copy of Gardening on Chalk and Limestone by E. Bertram Anderson. In this book, E. Anderson, holder of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Victoria Medal of Honour, sets out to prove that gardening on alkaline soil can be both easy and varied. He first outlines the methods of soil testing and improvement necessary to make full use of one’s garden. Following this is a list of his suggestions of plants that work best in this environment as well as tips and hints on how to grow and make full use of them. This list is both large and varied, covering trees, shrubs, climbers, roses, lilies and more.
