Well I ordered the book on the 8th Feb and it arrived today so its certainly fast shipping.
As a reference book to me with limited knowledge of aquarium plants I would imagine this book will become invaluable.

The added personal dedication to my 6yr old daughter also deflected any ear bashing from my good lady 😁

Good skills John, I’ll have to remember that strategy! I resorted to the slightly more childish approach of hiding my copy under the bed! 😆

Welcome and how nice to see you found your way to UKAPS. 👍 I know and did start reading books carrying your name already for so long ago that I don't even remember for how long. But since I'm part German heritage thus also a German speaker it was before the books were translated into my native language, so it kinda feels like forever.

And kinda feel honored to finally have the chance to meet you virtually in person.

Mir bleibt nur Danke zu sagen... :)

Hi Christel,
I would highly recommend her book to any one- it is the best book I have read about aquarium plants.
You will be a great asset
Yes, her techniques are different to many popular techniques on here, like loam and gravel rather than aquasoil. We can learn a different way to keep aquatic plants.

That would be an old edition.

Not necessarily :) believe it or not, there are people buying it and then decide to sell it again for whatever odd reasons.
We have an enormous book store specialized in 2nd hand copies, they have about 9 settlements divided over Belgium and the Netherlands. And they seem to have had a 2nd hand copy of this book in-store lately. But already sold again as stated.


They also sell books in German and English language as well, if you ever are in search of something sold out on the regular market. It's a chance they still might have a copy of it hidden in dust somewhere. Or you can subscribe to a mailing list to receive a notification on future availability. :)

Unfortunately, they do not have an international website.

My mistake, sorry. Thank you for the link to this website.
