Weeds on Trial
This ingenious and informative new book reveals the inside stories of more than 50 common weeds.
Ruth Binney (neé Chanter) spent her childhood in Tiverton where her father was a housemaster at Blundell's School. She is now happily settled in Yeovil, Somerset, and working on a variety of projects as well as enjoying the luxury of 'retirement' including family and friends, travel, football, walking netball and, most recently, painting in acrylics. Her latest books are Weeds on Trial, which reveals the good and bad of these garden invaders (and will be followed in 2020 by a sequel, Garden Wildlife on Trial), and Country House Secrets, detailed opposite.
