Readers’ reviews on Amazon

Hello everyone – this is more of a letter than a blog post.

Since my book – Edible Perennial Gardening – was published in 2014 I have been delighted to receive a number of emails and also personal comments about how much people have enjoyed it.  As it is coming up to Christmas and lots of people enjoy giving and receiving books as presents I thought I would make a suggestion about my own book.

Permanent Publications (my publishers) suggested to me that I ask anyone who has enjoyed it to write a review on Amazon as so many of us find other people’s reviews very helpful in deciding whether or not to buy something.  I know I often look at Amazon reviews of books I am thinking of getting, although whenever possible I buy them elsewhere.  I don’t think you have to have bought through Amazon to leave a review on there, so I shall leave it to those of you who have enjoyed my book to consider posting something on there.

For anybody who has not got a copy and would like one, it is available through Green Shopping which is the trading part of Permanent Publications and if people buy this way I get more of the proceeds!  Today the price is £13.45 at Green Shopping and £14.95 on Amazon, which is actually not what I had expected to find.

Best wishes, Anni x


About Anni Kelsey

I love forest gardens and forest gardening, nature, reading and everything good about being alive. I have written two books - the garden of equal delights (2020) - about the principles and practice of forest gardening; and Edible Perennial Gardening (2014) - about growing perennial vegetables in polycultures, which is basically forest gardening concentrating on the lower layers.

    I was going to review the book for you – I very much enjoyed it, but you need to have bought a book on Amazon to leave a review (not necessarily the book reviewed). I think the book is quite inspiring for people who wish to garden in a looser style. Although I consider myself fairly well educated as to perrenial plants, I still found that I learnt quite a bit. Thank you.

    Bought my copy a while ago too. It’s a nice book if any one is looking for another book. I pop back to it once in a while to get some ideas of what to sow when I want something different to try.

    I bought my copy through green shopping years ago and have recommended it to all my clients. I also place it out for people to see whenever I give a talk. I’ll try to leave a review on Amazon. Thanks for bringing it up!
