This is a lovely little book, great for little moments where you have nothing to do for a little while.
It is full of "information you didn't need to know but is fun to know anyhow"!
I have it in the car, and when I have to sit in traffic, or wait for a pharmacy order or such things, it is very amusing and informative.
I especially love the list of gardens too visit, plant list of the most famous white garden in the world, tidbits about botanists and their successes.
I'll give away one such little fact;
How to make a rose emoticon:

Wonderful little book, would make an excellent gift for any gardener. A Gardener's Hodgepodge of Information & Instruction.
Fascinating and entertaining read on almost any subject relating to gardening: Deconstructing horticultural latin, The Seven Principles of Xeriscape gardening, Mojito recipe for your mint, How to conduct a home soil pH Test and much more.
