James Wong home grown revolution

Post  plantoid on 12/14/2012, 3:54 pm

Have any of you got the latest must have book on edible plants in the home garden called Home Grown Revolution by James Wong ?
I've read about it in the so called quality newspapers and seen it discussed on TV but as we all know those places usually get a commision for mentioning it .

So ifyou have a copy pleae tell me what you think of it I have a birthday on the 21 st Dec and have been asked would i like to have a copy ( if I think it may be useful & intersting ) but I wouldn't want someone near & dear me to spend £ 20 + p&P on a book that is a waste of a tree as there are other things i'd rather have instead .

haven't read the book but there's a video on utube. looks intersting but i think i'd let the hype die down and get it cheaper.

Well, Haven't seen the reviews, for if we buy it, it will be shipped from the United Kingdom, with all rates, tarrifs, taxes, etc added to the cost.
But, I found a couple links, 1 offers seed to go with the book, which makes it a better deal, some very interesting food to grow!

http://www.suttons.co.uk/Gardening/Vegetable+Seeds/James+Wong+Homegrown+Revolution+Seeds/list.htm

Here you can buy the book and get 6 pks of his seed too.

that is a better deal for plantoid to get 12 quid worth of seed with the book instead of the book alone, but i think i'd take the money and build another sfg box and look to the internet if i was looking for something more exotic to grow.

Due to Santa being on the brandy a few week early I might be getting two books from within the family
I know one was obtained for only £ 9.78 inc P&P. If they both turn up I'm happy to send one over the pond to some lucky person as the postage is not much
