A Year at Kew - The Collection (Series 1-3) [DVD]
A Year at Kew - The Collection (Series 1-3) [DVD]
Dvd ~ Alan Titchmarsh

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This collection of DVD's really bring the gardens at Kew to life. Even better if you have visited them and they are already familiar. Knowing what goes on in the background to keep the collection so well maintained is mind-boggling but you get to know the staff as friends and live the working day with them becoming aware of how much they care about the whole place. If I lived closer to London and could afford to visit more often I would, however this DVD is the next best thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent book - full of detail and extra snippets of information on why plants are named the way they are, The RHS can always be trusted to give reliable information with a wealth of experience and resources behind them to back up all their publications. It is the sort of book you may move on to from other more user friendly books of similar ilk as it is written in a more field specific way, a very good source of reference material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mystery unravelled, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Useful information and helpful to any gardener or student - would have been useful to know it is written from an American perspective before I bought it, however, that fact is not so noticable in this book as it can be in others - Many useful facts and snippets of information to accompany the botanic names makes this a very user friendly book - very well laid out in a logical order - takes the mystery away from the reasoning behind why Latin is used for naming living things. Even for those of us in the Horticultural trade this book is a useful reference resource.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sensible book - sensible price - well written by people who know what they are talking about - the chance to look through the pages before placing the order was really useful - have made mistakes buying other books because of not being able to read through extracts first. Great delivery, really quick

3.0 out of 5 stars Looked good . . . until . . ., 13 Nov. 2012

This book looked good and just what I needed until it arrived and I opened the pages. Written well but it is all about America and has virtually no relevance to Britain - very disappointing - Colourful front cover and good price - delivery very fast too

4.0 out of 5 stars Just what was needed, 13 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Needed a straightforward pad of graph paper to plan out a plant nursery business and accommodation - brinstorming only - lots of scribbling - the pad is just what was needed for all the rough sketches - really fast delivery too

5.0 out of 5 stars More wedding favour success!, 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Split these seeds up into 50 smaller packets (bought 3 lots) to use at my daughter's wedding for favours. From all the positive comments they were very popular. Also bought some 'Love-in-the-mist' (Nigella) so that we had a variety. The seeds arrived very quickly and were well wrapped with very good instructions and detail about sowing, planting and care.

4.0 out of 5 stars Time saver at wedding, 2 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this roll of embossed banquet paper for daughters wedding recently. It was a real bargain and a big time and money saver. We still have plenty left although we used more than half and it was a relief to know that we wouldn't have to pay out for fabric tablecloths or have to launder and starch them afterwards. It was a little thinner than I thought it would be and had a tendancy to rip easily therefore I don't think it would be suitable for outdoor use if it was breezy day.
