I was really impressed with this book when I started to read it. Great, I thought, a book by a botanist about plants to grow in my garden, which won't make me feel guilty if I sometimes use a non-native or ornamental cultivar. However, I was disappointed to find a number of mistakes, both in the text and with the illustrations. Sometimes the captions are wrong, and one photograph has had something disastrous happen to the colours. I borrowed it from the library, and was going to buy it, but I think I'll wait for a second edition, hopefully with corrections.
I do think it could be a really useful and attractive book, but the mistakes have spoiled it for me. Non-botanists will probably not even notice!
