Bought as a presi but I had a sneeky look. Very easy to follow (excellent for both beginners and for more advanced growers). Plants etc that I have bought over the years from Unwins has always been of an excellent standard so I have no real problem with the quality of these items. I must admit that I do not grow sweetpeas from seed but buy young plants from Unwins but the book was very interesting.
