5.0 out of 5 stars I was very pleased that I bought this book 20 April 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the level of detail in the explanations and pictures to achieve a really authentic result.
I very much enjoyed reading these instructions and feel that although the method might take time and patience, the clear instructions should make an excellent result possible for even inexperienced flower makers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just one hybrid T rose? 6 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just the one (hybrid T rose) design makes this e-book rather expensive. I want to make old style and wild roses as well as hybrid T's! To be fair, the pictures and instructions are clear and easy to follow apart from the two leaves being referred to as petals towards the end of the book, a minute of minor confusion is all really, a mistake that I'm surprised got overlooked considering the small amount of words that this book actually contained!
