He is a frequent lecturer on gardening topics in the U.K., Europe, U.S.A., and Canada.

Reviews

Both novices and serious green thumbs on the lookout for rare and choice treasures to add to their rockeries will be equally fascinated by Jermyn's lovely, detailed descriptions. -- Alice Joyce Booklist 20051015 Jim's approach in his book is very helpful as he couples keen observation of the plants in the natural environment with authoritative information on their propagation and cultivation. ... The superb color photography just adds to the gardener's plant lust. I highly recommend this book as a resource you will be consulting for many seasons of gardening. -- Ann Bartlett Saximontana 20060101 Written for the alpine plant enthusiast, this reference book provides an exhaustive review of the European continent and offers the reader a wealth of information on this unique gardening niche. -- Jim Latchney American Reference Books Annual 20060301 I found it hard to close the book once I opened it. The photographs are truly exquisite. -- Barney Lipscomb Sida, Contributions to Botany 20050101 The pictures are gorgeous and Jermyn writes with fluidity reminiscent of a walk through the mountain tops. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in growing alpine plants in a natural garden setting. -- Emily Shelton Alaska Botanical Garden 20060301 So valuable are the cultural recommendations in the book that it must surely be regarded as a sound investment. -- Richard O'Connor The Rock Garden 20060201
