This book is a huge help for me. I have a large garden with lots of very wet areas, some clay, some chalk and woodland. This book makes it so easy to browse suitable plants for every tricky place. Highly recommended and would make a wonderful gift for a keen gardener.
As well as being a very in depth guide for plant selection and care its easy to use for beginners. Bought as a gift and it looks fantastic on the book shelf or laid out on display. Incredible value for what you get considering the quality of this hard back book.
What a great book, a lot bigger than I was expecting but so many flowers and details on where to put them and how to grow them - so they survive!! Great full colour pictures and everything I need to choose them, now just need something to tell me how to keep them in pristine order!
I always feel a little guilty when I have a book that has so much useful info in it. It's like taking a shortcut to win a race .. Yes, so quite pricey but worth having a copy if you're regularly needing some guidance on "right plant, right place"
