4.0 out of 5 stars White not yellow but fine plate and quick service., 8 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The bit about putting your desired reg no in a separate message seems a little insecure but it works fine. They don't acknowledge receipt of the message. Cheap as chips, perfect plate, ordered Fri delivered Tues (could even have been Mon, can't remember). One teeny thing - the photo shows yellow plates, mine came as white. Govt web site suggests that rear plates (for e.g. trailer) should be yellow. But I'm using it anyway ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting!, 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not terribly recent but a really informative video which I have watched over and over, and lent out too - includes some rarities, not just a superficial beginners gardening effort at all. If anyone can tell me why the first set of shoots on Dahlias are supposedly useless for cuttings and should be thrown out - please let me know! Nobody (including many Dahlia growers) agrees!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 16 Aug. 2014
I love Beth's gardens, but found this very disappointing. The photos are good, but the selection used seems to turn the gardens into a set of seasonal cliches - ALL the winter shots are of the garden after snowfall. Spring is the woodland garden (with lots of repeats of the same plants over and over, summer is the dry garden ... but there is so much more than this! A missed opportunity. There is pretty much no text other than in the introduction and odd plant IDs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book on a wide range of grasses and design/care ..., 16 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Designing With Grasses (Hardcover)
Fantastic book on a wide range of grasses and design/care considerations - I would have preferred more photos and information about varieties in the A-Z section however. Pair it with Piet Oudolf's and you'll cover a good range.


The Timber Press Encyclopedia of Flowering Shrubs: More Than 1500 Outstanding Garden Plants
The Timber Press Encyclopedia of Flowering Shrubs: More Than 1500 Outstanding Garden Plants
by Jim Gardiner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £31.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably my favourite gardening book, 16 Aug. 2014
A book I would not be without - perhaps even my favourite gardening book. Very much a picture book - you could almost say a coffee table book (in gardening company, of course!) - minimal information about plants but nevertheless enough to let you know whether something is likely to survive in your area and where to plant it - but (WOW!) such amazing photographs of a HUGE range of plants (nothing is only mentioned in text - they all have good photographs). I'm a bit of a Mahonia nut - there are pages of them - some great surprises and new finds - yet also some surprises with respect to varieties not included (perhaps to reflect the American location of the publishers?). I will never tire of this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful book, 16 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good information, well-structured - but some varieties not photographed and often photographs somewhat jaded or disappointing.

Buddlejas (Royal Horticultural Society Plant Collector Guide)
by David D. Stuart
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £21.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it, 16 Aug. 2014
Great information - perhaps starting to get a little outdated as regards newer varieties, and the photographs/photographic reproduction is not great (as with others in this series) but still a book I keep going back to and a very informative one to have.
