I won't buy a book simply because it's by a TV presenter but I won't snub them either. Just depends what the books about and if I think there's a better book on the same topic available.

The series of books by Martyn Rix and Roger Phillips, Shrubs, Early Perennials, LatePerennials and lots more including the splendid Mushrooms which has helped me ID lots of the fungi around the garden, Very good for a browse if you're looking for a new plant.

Christopher Lloyd wrote some good books early on but some of the later ones were rather empty. Lots of pretty and not many words. A shame as CL was a master of words.

.Rather the opposite from you.I don't think there's a single TV presenter whose books I have bought

The mix mentioned will grow if it's thrown on the garden which is what most people will be doing. 

A good journalist can write about anything but will lack the in-depth knowledge.

It's fairly complex til you get the hang of it. Differentiating between the types of meadow is a good start

What's this??

hostas die back in winter.

Hosta can be quite big. I didn't notice there were two plants. The hosta is most likely to put up with being moved
