Review: “I Love Gardening” by Mike Jupp, Gibsons – 9.5/10

Gibsons is a high-quality puzzle brand from the UK with beautiful blue boxes, very thick pieces, and a waxy matte finish. Their Mike Jupp series of "I Love..." puzzles is enormously popular in the UK and for good reason. These busy cartoon puzzles are filled with fine detail, bright colors, and humorous sight gags. It's fun to discover all the characters and animals as you piece this puzzle together. The grid cut, seamless finish, and excellent image reproduction all mark this as a AAA brand with an excellent tactile feel. Due to the standard piece cut, some pieces may appear to go where they don't belong, which makes this brand more challenging to work than some. If you like cartoon puzzles, you'll definitely want to check out the Mike Jupp puzzles in this series. "I Love Gardening" is ideal for those who have a green thumb or just like a moderately difficult and detailed puzzle.
