    Wonderful book to browse before selecting further additions to our garden. Photos of thousands of flowers and trees (60 odd pages covering roses for example).

        A wonderful reference book but it weighs a ton so not something just to pick up and casually leaf through on your lap, you need to put it on a table (well I do)

          Excellent reference book for gardeners, a must have. The book is heavy and you do have to sit at a table to read but that is only a slight hiccup.

            Too heavy for easy referencing. Should have been divided into two volumes. Good information and well set out.

            Comments about Gardening Australia's Flora:

            Service is so fast. It was here in no time. Excellent Customer Service for all areas. Notification and Delivery Sections. Very well wrapped and secure. Delivered as requested. All your books come the same as above.
            Was a gift for my husband so he would have the latest up to date information and the new section for plants. Thought it would be in two books like last time as the one very large book is rather heavy to sit on your knee in the lounge and read. He refers to the book all the time for information for his work (Horticulturist at local Council)and for his own knowledge of plants. Loves the book and the updates but has to sit at the table in the kitchen now to read it. Not a real problem just a thought towards publishing another special one remember many older persons will read this book than young ones and they may find it too heavy as well. No complaints overall about any thing from the book and the delivery and customer service. Keep up the good work.
