Question:
Hi, I work at a non-profit green organization in NYC educating adults and youths about trees. I am well-schooled in arboriculture, but need a crash course in horticulture for an upcoming event. Can you recommend any good, easy to find, and preferably inexpensive books that could provide me with a basic overview and understanding?
