5.0 out of 5 stars My Book 2 Sep 2010
I think I wrote this really well! LOL.

Seriously if you want a book that is based on real experience and gives you everything you need to know whether you are a beginner or experienced this is the book for you. It is laid out in a way that answers your queries - eg climbers for shade, climbers in colours etc. Hope you enjoy it - Pip Bensley
