  • Recently whilst in Canberra, I purchased this wonderful book from a Belconnen Town Centre bookstore.

    Apart from all the accurate & concise information, the addition of reproduction illustrations etc are a bonus.

    I will happily pass this book onto my grandchildren - hopefully one of them will turn out to be a 'plantaholic' such as myself. Cheers from Down Under!
