"My favorite is “The Plant Lover’s Guide to Dahlias,” by Andy Vernon. The mug shots of these beauties are gorgeous, and Mr. Vernon’s descriptions have a breezy authority that makes me want them all."

"Andy’s tone is chipper and informal, making every page eminently readable; yet there is no scrimping on the expert guidance."



Sarah Raven in The English Garden magazine -  'Books of The Year' December 2014


"It is hugely informative, light on its feet, and funny, with tons of photographs arranged in colour to really help you hone your selections. It's a good-looking, learned-enough-but-not-too-scholarly book."





At the Garden Media Guild Awards held at the Savoy Hotel in London on 26th November 2014, my book won the award for 'Reference Book of the Year'.

Judges comments


"The Plant Lover's Guide to Dahlias stood out for its easily readbale text and stunning photography. The layout makes it easy to select varieties wether the reader is a novice or an experienced gardener. It makes the genus appealing whether growing for ornament or the cutting garden. It showcases dahlias not only as individual subjects but also as star performers in the garden planting palette. Attractive cover design and the right retail price ensure successful marketing."
