RHS President Keith Weed and Neil during the launch of Neils latest book, ‘Grasses for Gardens and Landscapes’, at Chelsea Flower Show 2023.

Intended as a practical guide, this book is not just for established gardeners; it is for anyone who takes an interest in outdoor spaces, whether surrounding a small private home or in a larger public space. With an eye towards naturalistic gardening and environmental awareness, Neil explores how such a worldwide success story as the family of grasses can be used so effectively and easily in our gardens.

To help celebrate Neils 30th year at Knoll we are delighted to offer his recent book ‘Grasses for Gardens and Landscapes’ (RRP £40), at a special 30th anniversary price of £30 (plus 5.99 p&p).

Within the same pages, however, Lucas also manages to provide useful and eye-opening information for the professional gardener or designer”
