Campaign offers book on conifers

A book showing modern ways to use conifers effectively has been produced by the Plant For Life campaign ahead of National Conifer Week, which takes place from 29 September to 5 October 2008.

This year's conifer campaign aims to challenge the stereotypical views of the plant by highlighting its attractive features including colour, structure and style.

The book includes photographs of conifers in modern pots and could be used in garden centres to promote conifers to customers.

It is published by Plant For Life, the HTA body aiming to help the public make the most of their gardens, in conjunction with the Association of British Conifer Growers.
