'Bromeliads For The Contemporary Garden' by Andrew Steens. Published by Random House NZ Ltd, March 2011. This is a signed copy from the author (please let him know if you would like to dedicate it to someone for a birthday or similar).

The Bromeliaceae family consists of about 46 genera, several thousand species and a bewildering number of hybrids and cultivars. Their diversity makes bromeliads endlessly fascinating.

This book is a fully revised edition of Andrew Steens' first and highly successful book for bromeliad growers which has sold over 20,000 copies worldwide.

About 40 species and cultivars have been replaced with plants that are less difficult to obtain and over 60 species and cultivars have been added to increase the range covered in the book. Around a third of the 300 or so photos have been replaced and
about another 180 added.

Andrew Steens is a plant fanatic, a professional horticulturist with extensive experience across the landscaping, fruit, vegetable and flower industries in management, production, education, consultancy and marketing - as well as being a keen gardener with a half-acre property north of Auckland.

He is passionate about plants and devotes nearly every waking moment to growing or thinking about plants - its not just his hobby, it is his life! Hes received the Sir Victor Davies Award for outstanding plant knowledge, has won several medals at the Ellerslie International Flower Show and has published four books on bromeliads and gardening.

Andrew is currently managing director of CropLink Consulting Ltd, which provides consulting services for numerous horticultural crops, and he is often called on as an expert witness for crop damage claims. Please click here to ask a question
