A Real Treasure
on 19 April 2009
A really beautiful book, packed with useful and interesting knowledge, clearly written by someone who knows exactly what she is talking about. Suitable for the beginner or for the experienced gardener, everything is very well explained, and it really is an inspiring piece of work. Although the tone is largely factual and informative, some wry humour creeps in here and there, which really adds to it. I'd love to meet the author.
The only thing that fell a little short was the pictures, although lovely, didn't always give me confidence that I'd be able to identify the plants. Could've done with a few less artsy photos and a few more "clinical" ones.
Overall though I highly recommend this book, it's a real treasure.
