Rare BookAbout the Author:
Tony Russell's career with plants and gardens began in 1978 when, soon after leaving school and completing a long distance charity walk from John OÆ Groats to Lands End, he joined the Forestry Commission in Snowdonia. In 1980 he went to Newton Rigg, Cumbria to study forestry and horticulture and after qualifying in 1983 he took up post as Forester for the New Forest in Hampshire. In 1989 he was appointed Head Forester of Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire, one of the finest collections of tree and shrubs in the temperate world. His areas of responsibility included development and management of the Arboretum, conservation of its many rare and endangered species and interpretation of the collection and its environmental importance to others. By 1999 he had increased annual visitors to Westonbirt from 140,000 to 300,000, making Westonbirt the third most visited garden in the UK at that time (after Kew Gardens and the RHS Garden, Wisley). In 2000, in recognition of these achievements, the British Government awarded Westonbirt, National Status. Tony left Westonbirt in 2002 and is now widely recognised as one of BritainÆs leading authorities on trees and shrubs. Over the last few years he has become a familiar face (and voice) on both TV and radio, presenting many horticultural and countryside programmes. His six-part TV series æThe Cotswold Garden TrailÆ was nominated for the æTV broadcast of the yearÆ at the National Garden Writers Guild awards held at the Savoy, London in November 2002. He co-presented the TV gardening series æRoots and ShootsÆ for HTV and scripted and presented the much acclaimed major TV series for ITV æBritainÆs Great TreesÆ - which was screened during the summer of 2003 and repeated in 2004. Also in 2004 he presented a six-part radio series for BBC Radio 4 entitled æPlant InvadersÆ. In 2005 Tony presented two TV series - æGarden TrailÆ and æForests of Southern EnglandÆ û both for ITV. In 2006 he worked with the BBC on the TV documentary series æSave Lullingstone CastleÆ, which was based around the creation of the World Garden at Lullingstone Castle in Kent. This was screened on BBC2 in the spring of 2006 followed by a second series in 2007. Also in 2007, Tony presented the BBC Radio 4 series æInspiring TreesÆ and in 2008 he can be regularly heard on Gardeners Question Time on BBC Radio 4. Catherine Cutler is the supervisor of the humid tropics biome at the award-winning Eden Project, in Cornwall, England. She was responsible for overseeing the planting, design and development of the biome, from its beginnings, as a tropical paradise. Her career has included a study and work period in Malaysia's National Orchid Garden in Kuala Lumpur, where she took part in an environmetally orientated forestation scheme, propagating native rainforest trees in east Malaysia, and working in India maintaining and cataloguing formal gardens. Her travel in the tropics included study of agro-forestry systems in Kenya and spice-growing in the Caribbean.
