1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother., 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very, very disappointing. Was hoping to get some very useful information out of this book. It didn't answer any of my questions and I learnt nothing. Most of the chapters were boring and needn't have been included. A total waste of money.

I enjoyed this book. It gave me lots of ideas for my own projects. Good pictures. Some things were a bit strange but still good to flick through of an evening.

3.0 out of 5 stars A book to keep dipping into., 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lovely book. I did find it a bit technical and some of it went straight over my head. I do keep picking it up though to have a bit of a read. After reading i also decided not to go ahead with my own forest garden.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Delivery was super quick and the product was tasty. Unfortunately they were very overpriced (although I suppose that was my choice to purchase). The most disappointing thing was that they only had a few days shelf life. Had to eat them straight away. Felt like i was getting last year's stock that hadn't sold!

1.0 out of 5 stars Should have stated North Wales dialect!, 2 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The CD is too fast, I can't pick it up. The words aren't broken down into syllables, goodness knows how children manage. Also the book is too far advanced. I haven't got past page one yet. There is no translation underneath the phrases. I am at a loss! Thought that by buying a children's version it would be nice and simple. Unfortunately not. I also wanted to learn the South Wales dialect which this book and CD is definitely not. I now have to go out and buy something else, so not happy with purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Still unsure, but a good starting point., 21 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wouldn't really recommend this one. The ingredients are not the easiest to source and were quite expensive. Some of the recipes I tried, I wouldn't try again and I think the quantities quoted were often wrong. After doing an internet search I have actually found simpler and cheaper recipes.

Lovely colourful little book. Bit disappointed with the lack of information on trees. Also includes non-British trees which wasn't as useful.

2.0 out of 5 stars One woman's memoirs of life living off the land, 31 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very interesting read but not full of the practical know-how which I was expecting. The author came across as being very bitter about her life and the 'story' seemed to jump around quite a bit. Not really something you can dip into for advice every now and then.
