5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful guide, 3 Mar. 2014

As always the Good Food guide is a useful indication of where you might eat well in Great Britain. It has its quirks and omissions of places I have enjoyed but my taste may well not be everyone's


The Tulip
The Tulip
by Anna Pavord
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.68

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty book, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tulip (Paperback)
More a history book than either a horticultural or botanical account of tulips. What it says is of interest to garden historians but rather less so to practical horticulturalists trying to grow tulips or sort out the chaos of the naming of varieties.

Well illustrated account of tulips both in the wild and as grown in our gardens, with more or less ease!

4.0 out of 5 stars A serious attemopt at a book about tulips, 9 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is very well illustrated with paintings by Diana Everett though perhaps a few too many photographs of her out collecting specimens. Several experts have contributed to make altogether the best modern book available on tulips.


The Story of the Scrolls: The miraculous discovery and true significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls
The Story of the Scrolls: The miraculous discovery and true significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls
by Geza Vermes
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Vermes's version, 21 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is a distinct air throughout the book that the author is rather pleased with himself which detracts from an otherwise useful book. The Dead Sea scrolls and their interpretation is a contentious issue and on the whole Vermes explains the various probems well.

Solidly made. My only complaint is that it does not house double discs or even overly thick single disc cases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original early instruments lend enchantment, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The delight of this music is that one can hear it as Mozart must have done as it is played on copies of the original instruments used in Mozart's days. Lovely music as always from Mozart.

Price: £17.10

3.0 out of 5 stars Handy garden sprayer, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Difficult to bend the hose so that the head stays in a position to spray but useful that you can choose several different patterns of spray.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing construction, 15 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very poor quality material which splits easily when nailed or screws inserted. Doubtful if it will stand up to use for many weeks.
