AHS new? book

I've just seen an advert for the AHS Encyclopedia of Plants and Flowers.
It says it was published by DK - Dorling Kindersley in 2002, consists of
720 pages, covers 8,000+ plants, includes 4,250 photos, and that it is
"the NEW definitive guide to the garden plants and flowers of NA". They
show an open page and the layout for that section is according to
seasonal interest.

Everything I've listed above (except "the NEW...of NA") is identical to
the AHS's Encyclopedia released about 10 years ago. I always referred to
it as the 'green book' because it had a green cover. It was followed by
the 'brown' dictionary, which was follwed by the 'navy blue' (sometimes
silver) AHS A-Z.

So....is this NEW book a reprint of the the green book? Perhaps it has
new forwards and some items updated, but am I correct in assuming it is
essentially the same book?


If you have weeds, you don't have enough plants.
