Thread: the world over

  1. #1

    the world over

    So the people here in the garden aren't necessarily all speaking the same language or sharing the same culture, but they all have a love of gardening which universally the world over, diehard gardeners all have something in common and it's a really great social glue that binds people here together.


    What is the meaning of " which universally the world over" in this part?

    In my understanding this sounds a tad redundant, once that universally already means the world over..but these slips happen...Im an avid garden-lover btw...any other botany fellow out there?;)

    It looks to me as though something is missing from this quote.
