Our customer reviews

A lovely little book, useful for carrying when out walking, that identifies lots of the commonly seen flowers in the UK. Also has some of the medicinal uses for a number of the flowers. The only downside that I have found so far, is that if you have no idea what you are looking at, you cannot search by colour of flowers. Still, well worth the price.show more
