Reviews

What a delight it is to come across a book that provides such helpful advice and beautiful pictures to help visitors to this wildflower wonderland. I particularly value having a map as well as location information for the dozens of wildflowers that grown in southern Portugal in springtime (December to May being the key months). The scientific names are included for those who prefer to work that way. A pocket guide that is excellent value for money and beautifully produced. Ten out of ten!

With chapters on the major habitat types - coastal cliffs and coves, agricultural land, river valleys and estuaries, and mountains and forests - the authors guide visitors to the best wildflower locations, describing and illustrating more than 100 of the most beautiful wildflower species to be found throughout the year..
