At the beginning of March, the German Garden Book Award was presented again in twelve categories at Dennenlohe Castle. As a member of the jury, Katharina von Ehren had the chance to indulge in the books and would like to show her personal favourites here:
1st Place “Best Guide”
The reasoning for the jury choosing this for the 1st prize in the category of best guide says “Overall, it is a real treat for everyone interested in perennials. Christian Kreß is regarded as having outstanding knowledge about perennials. An ideal book for inspiration for the new design of flower beds in the springtime.”
2nd Place “Best Guide”
3rd Place “Best on Garden History Book”
A great, small book from the ‘Natural History’ series. The amazing natural and cultural history of the nettle – one of the most important wild crops that hold many surprises.
