By Mr. Wu
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very well organised content accompanied by beautiful illustrations and pictures. The binding is nice and strong, suitable for frequent uses in the years to come. I also like the soft cover as opposed to hardcover. Highly recommended.

I ordered this copy as a present for my daughter who has just got into gardening. I have a copy myself and use it a lot. It has clear, easy to follow instructions. It deals with a wide variety of gardening techniques which are well illustrated. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in gardening.
