Zoom in to see blurry text and blurry photos.
I wish I had bought the actual book.
No search function to look up plant names nor terminology.
No book mark function nor highlighting tools.
A good quality book and being an RHS publication, you know the correct botanical names are used (at the time of printing). I did some price checking before purchasing, and this was the cheapest copy I found.
There have been a few plants, which are pretty common that I wanted to look up but have not been included. I kind of understand why they probably have done it, but I find it a bit frustrating the plants in each group aren't in alphabetical order.
