Format: Hardcover
I've been waiting for a new book on sweet peas for ages and I was delighted to discover this new book. Lots of beautiful pictures coupled with plenty of practical advice and no irritating jargon, I like to grow sweet peas in the garden with other plants - I'm not interested in exhibiting - and this book gave me some good advice and lots of ideas. The history of sweet peas is fascinating too.

This is a very good informative book for people who are just starting out with sweet peas, or like us, had been many years since we last grew them.

Interesting and thorough. Do wish that the writing would have cited pages where there were actual photographs of the sweetpea varieties discussed. Thank heaven's for the internet! Still, gave me plenty of ideas.
