Grass guru, Neil Lucas, is the nine consecutive Chelsea Flower Show gold medalist and owner of the beautiful Knoll Gardens in Dorset.

In this Neil's first book he provides a fascinating and practical guide to using grasses in a wide variety of differing garden situations. And whilst the book is beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs by Neil and photographer Dianna Jazwinski, Neil's descriptions of grasses and how they change throughout the season are exquisite.

The book also contains a useful directory of grasses and grass-like plants, detailing where they grow best, dimensions and more.

This book is a must for gardeners and designers. I defy even the most experienced of us to put this book down without having learnt something new.

My blog http://gardensbymikepalmer.blogspot will be featuring an exclusive interview with Neil Lucas later this week.

Hi. My interview with Neil is a fascinating insight into him, his new book and the Chelsea Flower Show. If Neil is happy, would you be interested in sharing it with the Shoot readers?

I'm happy for you to see what I've written beforehand.

Mike
