Agapanthus for Gardeners
Agapanthus for Gardeners
by Hanneke Van Dijk

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 21 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what I wanted. If I have one criticism, I'd have like to have seen more cultivars included. Good illustrations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Total rubbish, 18 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't need to say much about this. It looked ok but the blade attachment stuck so the jar was difficult to clean. The entire jug assembly then jammed in the top making cleaning very difficult indeed. The plastic base then cracked (releasing the jug assembly) ... still worked - just. Then the motor burnt out. I only had it for four months. Do I care about the guarantee? No way. I never want to see another one like it. Quite definitely the most dreadful appliance I have ever purchased. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES BUY ONE OF THESE

3.0 out of 5 stars Charcuterie, 21 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no doubt that this is a useful book. However, from my point of view its has two serious drawbacks which are linked
1: It is very American in its approach. Ingredients and measurements are geared to American readers (although helpfully most quantities are given in grams too)
2: Obtaining some of the required ingredients in the UK, and probably Europe, takes a bit of research
Please in the next edition could the authors do the necessary research for those of us who don't live in the USA.
