"[An] enticing variety of facts."-- "Historic Gardens Review"
"A compendium that cannot fail to fascinate anyone with an interest in plants and flowers."---Patricia MacDuff, British Naturalists Association
"The perfect book for that impossible-to-satisfy gardening nerd in your life. . . . A perfectly general collection of bits and pieces, a compendium of botanical snippets, that will inform, amuse and entertain anybody with an interest in gardening, botany or nature in general."---Paddy Tobin, An Irish Gardener
"I really like [Gracie's] investigations of things we all have heard like floral idioms. . . . There are also charming discussions about plants that we know and others that we don't, from other parts of the world."-- "Lapwing Magazine"
"Florapedia is an aptly named gem of a book, with an A-Z of informative cover to cover interest, providing the reader with a new found knowledge and insight to a different perspective on the flora of our world."---Neville Davies, Gwent Wildlife Trust
