Volume 4 - Flowering Trees

With the publication of Volume 4 "Flowering Trees" SFTGS has now completed our planned series of four booklets covering flowering plants, annuals, ground covers, herbs, climbers, bulbs, rhizomes, tubers and foliage plants. Most people admire the beauty of flowering trees and as the foreword puts it "in the eyes of humankind trees serve many purposes", but even more important to realise is that trees are essential for ALL life on the planet. No trees — No life — No humans — No you and No me. So please go hug your trees, flowering or otherwise. This fourth volume of “Gardening in Malaysia” as with our previous three volumes, provides gorgeous photographs accompanied by useful information about the trees themselves.
