This book is not laid out as a 'field guide' or 'I.D. book' or 'garden planner' style, it is laid out as a book to read with a paragraph or two on each plant. It talks about the plant and where it lives naturally, its physical features and in most cases suggestions on where it might be used in a garden. A large 'x-section' of plants are covered in this way (trees, shrubs & other plants).
There is a long 'check' list (a few pages long) of other native Scottish plants at the end of the book that includes Latin, common & 'Gaelic/Scots' name. I enjoyed reading this book. I would like to know some outlets that stock some of the less common plants in the book?...Scotia seeds & NPK Landscapes do sell some of the species and eBay too now etc..

HASH(0x924b3c18) out of 5 stars Book would have benefited from larger pictures of the plants. 1 Sept. 2014

I received the book quickly from the seller. Nice book with a lot of information. Just returned from Scotland and wanted a book to help me identify the wildflowers that were growing everywhere. Unfortunately the pictures are small. I was looking for a book with larger pictures and perhaps several pictures of the same plant that showed a close up and more detail of the plant. The book would also benefit from pictures of the plants in the landscape that would help with easy identification when traveling. This book was disappointing and I am still looking for one with better, more detailed pictures.
