Best of Books - compulsory for the beginner!
on 14 April 2002
This book has been a great source of information in selecting flowering plants for my garden. As far as I am concerned, it is a 'must' if you want to avoid planting plants that are unsuitable for your garden's soil pH and type, climate limitations, aspect, etc. Even skimming through the pages has brought unknown plants to my attention and thus prompted me to purchase seeds of these, thus introducing a continual expanded variety of flowers within my garden. The information keeps me on the right course in the care of my plants, yet at the same time allowing room for risk taking which often pays off. The format of the book is easily followed and the layout simple and uncluttered. Excellent book! - one which will be used over and over again till it falls to pieces, then I will just buy a new one of the same!
