Format: Paperback
Of the wild-flower books I own, including "The Encyclopedia of Wild Flowers," and the "Collins Gem Wild Flowers," Neil Fletcher's Pocket Nature Wild Flowers is certainly the simplest and clearest to use. I do have one complaint, however, and it is with the index, which I find inconsistent, incomplete, and in some respects, useless. For example, many flowers, such as "Buttercup" and "Thistle," just to mention a couple, are not even listed as such in the index. To find them there, you would need to know their full names, such as "Creeping Buttercup," "Spear Thistle," "Creeping Thistle," or "Marsh Thistle." For me, as a beginner in learning about wild flowers, a good index would show all varieties under "Thistle." Other flowers, such as the "Daisy," are not listed except under their Latin names. For me a good index is an important aspect of a reference book, and this one certainly leaves much to be desired.

I have a couple of books on wildflowers and have used them 'in the field'. However, they all assume that you know what family the flowers are from before you begin to identify them - and so I end up spending time flicking through the pages. Not here - I always wondered why they didn't classy flowers by colour - well they do in this book. So come across a flower you don't know, skip to the right colour section in the book and hey presto! Really easy to use, lots of good information. My 4 year old can even use it. Great!

Format: Paperback
This is the best book I've found on wild flowers that's easy to carry yet detailed. There are over 440 species in it with brief sections on plant height, flower size, flowering time, leaf and fruit detail and similar plants in addition to a general characteristics section. Each entry is half a page and the book length from top to bottom is about 19 cm. It also tells you where to find the plants in the Uk and it covers NW Europe. The photos are clear and there are illustrations. It's easy to find the plants when out exploring/foraging as they are organised according to colour- this is the main reason why I bought it.

Easy to find and identify things and logically presented

A perfect book for the task of identifying what we have in France, where we live and the UK. Not too complicated to peruse and fine for the job.

If anyone is interested in wild flowers or just has a need to identify one, this is the book to have. Clear, simple and easy to use, this little gem makes the identification of wild flowers so much more interesting.
The colour coding is what makes it so easy to use.
Mine has already become a bit dog-eared after only 6 months.

This is an excellent book with beautiful pictures of the various wild flowers. Each colour of flower is grouped together in the one section which I find very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend.

This guide is great for beginners and more experienced botanists to search for flowers by colour. It is a good size for taking out in the field with nice colour photos. There is also a "Similar Species" section which lists flowers that might be confused with the one you are looking at which is very useful. Love that feature. The only negative is the index which can be a little confusing. The names of the flowers are listed either by their Latin or by their English name but not both so if you do not know the Latin name of a flower it is possible that you do not find it in the index but it may still be in the book.
