Carol,

Have you read it? And if so, how did you find it?


And I think I beat you on price!

Paddy

Pleased to hear that you enjoyed reading the book. Many thanks for your kind comments.

Phew, the competition's a tough one. So far, think I can only identify one plant with any certainty....... But it's a challenge which I'm sure folk will respond to.

Dave,

I think that under the normal rules of such competitions you might not be permitted to enter, so no worries about how many you have identified.

Hi Paddy

No I haven't read - did see when David M. came to he Moray group and had an advance copy. How are you beating me on price? Given that I have not quoted one ;)

Come on folks.

Surely I don't  need to start giving hints on the plant names - see the competition questions posted earlier.

So, you think you don't know them all and haven't sent in your entry yet!

Not to worry, NOBODY has them all right so far so you are in with a good chance to win this book even with most of the answers correct.

Sorry Paddy - I would have loved to take part in the competition - but your pictures painfully confronted me with my still very limited knowledge in the plantworld....  :-[ .... especially when you leave the restricted domain of alpines.
You're clearly growing a totally different range of plants than I am...

I appreciate the initiative though !

Luc,

I don't believe you!!!!

Have a go anyway. You never know - you might be the lucky one!

And I promise that nobody will be embarrassed by having their answers revealed.

Right, everyone, sit up, please and pay attention!
The response so far to Paddy's competition to win a copy of the super book Alpine Plants, Ecology for Gardeners has been somewhat underwhelming.... what is up with you folks? Don't you want a free book? Remember, this volume is co-authored by one of our very own Forumists, Dave Milward... the lad will be feeling seriously under valued at this rate! To win this book, all you have to do is study the photos from Paddy's garden, earlier in this thread, and send me a personal message, via the forum or by email, with your answers....how hard can it be?  True, paddy seems to grow a wide range of weird and wonderful plants but I know how varied the tastes are of the forumists and I cannot believe that there are not a few of you out there who could have a good stab at the quiz. Perhaps you have all bought the book already? If so, then well done, but still have a go at the quiz.... when you win, the book will make a lovely present for a friend!!
I'd have a go myself, but now Paddy has given me the answers!!

Oops! Hadn't thought of that  :-[   But if I hadn't said anything, we wouldn't have had a good competition for the prize  :P   It's not all beer and skittles, this job, you know...it has tricky bits! ::) :o

To paraphrase a voting slogan used here - enter early, enter often!
