Dear Timber Reader, This year, the catalogue moves from a seasonal to an annual publication, with a new design and format. We hope you’ll find it a useful resource to keep next to your favourite seed catalogues and refer to throughout the year. We’re straight into the gardening season in April with the launch of the Plant Lover’s Guides (pages 2-3). Written for keen gardeners, each title focuses on a favourite garden plant. We’ll publish four books a year, packed with full-colour photographs, cultivation and design tips and a comprehensive resource section showing you where to see these plants, who to buy them from and how to keep them looking their best. So, whether you are a fan of the flamboyant dahlia or the quiet snowdrop, or have a soft spot for both, these books will be an invaluable addition to your library. In the summer we have a bumper crop of garden-related reading, starting with Latin for Bird Lovers (page 5). This is the companion volume to the hugely popular Latin for Gardeners that Mitchell Beazley and the RHS published last year. The combination of quirky anecdotes, lovely illustrations and useful information about the origin of bird names will fascinate bird lovers, gardeners and crossword enthusiasts! Another highlight will be Andy McIndoe’s Creative Shrub Garden (page 6) coming in August. Shrubs form the backdrop of many successful gardens but Andy brings them centre stage with a fresh approach to choosing the right shrub for the right place and combining this important group of plants with other garden favourites. Follow us on Twitter @TimberPressUK or friend us on facebook at www.facebook. com/TimberPressUK for all the latest news on books, gardening and everything in between.

If you’re planning a woodland garden this year, let Keith Wiley’s experience in creating woodland habitats inspire and inform your efforts. His book Designing and Planting a Woodland Garden (page 8) is published in November just when your thoughts may be turning to what you’re going to grow in 2015 and beyond! Perhaps this will be the year you create a wonderful outdoor space where plants combine perfectly with furniture and accessories to epitomise your own personal style. If so you will need Rochelle Greayer’s book Cultivating Garden Style (page 4). An experienced garden designer, stylist and trendspotter via her influential blog ‘studio-g’ and magazine ‘Leaf’, Rochelle is perfectly placed to help you realise your dream garden. We hope you’ll agree that 2014 looks like a very exciting year for Timber Press. We are proud to publish our expert team of authors and committed to making the best books for gardeners, professionals and students. If you think there’s something we’re missing that you’d like to read about, let us know at

All very best wishes,

They also provide a lush green surface to look out on, a valuable habitat for wildlife, and another place to grow plants! Choose the book that is right for you from our growing collection.
