Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland: 2nd Edition (Paperback)
The reviews of Wild Flowers were very positive and when it arrived in the post it lived up to expectations. The book has superb illustrations by Marjorie Blamey which seem to possess greater clarity than those in the 2010 Collins Flower Guide (paperback version).
The inclusion of grasses rushes and ferns increases the scope of the guide without making it too weighty to carry, if anything it feels a little more portable than the Collins Flower Guide. The UK distribution maps included for most species are a useful addition and the text is clear and informative.
How well it stands up to being toted around in the pocket will be the acid test, if it lasts as well as my old 1993 Collins Pocket Guide (also by Blamey, Fitter & Fitter) I'll be very pleased.
