You can't tell from the online picture but this book is a magic 1000 pages of plant info crammed into a small pocket sized book. It's very handy for refering to when buying at the garden centre and is well worth the price. Plants are grouped together by where they should be planted which helps save you making any costly errors. My only gripe with the book is that the text in the index will be far to small for a lot of people to read. They could have added a few extra pages and made the text the same size as the rest of the book.
