Cliff Booker has been utterly consumed with the study, cultivation, propagation, exhibition and photography of alpine plants since 1984 and, with his wife Sue, has travelled to many mountain locations around the world to feed his passion (addiction).

His penchant for fine photography has resulted in lecture tours to New Zealand, Canada, the USA, Holland and Belgium, and to many Alpine Garden Society and Scottish Rock Garden Groups around the UK and Ireland. He is co-author of two well-received books: Mountain Flowers - the Dolomites and Mountain Flowers - the Pryenees and Picos. Cliff is a Gold Medal and triple Farrer Medal exhibiter at national level and, with his "right arm" Sue, has lead wildflower holidays to the Dolomites for British-based Collette's Mountain Holidays for nearly twenty years.

Cliff and Sue live in Lancashire, in the cool damp north-west of England and specialize in growing high mountain Ranunculus and (too) many other rock garden and woodland species in a newly established garden.
