After I thought I knew what I was getting in to when starting my own vegetable garden, I quickly realized I was mistaken. After my first year of crops were average, I needed a resource that was always at my finger tips. If you are like me, this is the book for you. The colorful illustrations followed by descriptions of variety, lighting needs, spacing, harvesting, and storing are a great step by step guide. I will be using the book this year when planning and planting my vegetables.
I love gardening. I have always wanted to learn how to meditate and engage in stress fee mind sets and that has always been difficult for me. Gardening can be so cathartic as I cover my hands in the dirt and mud and smell the wet dirt and feel the pride at growing your own food. Providing for your family with your own two hands. Unfortunately, I am relatively new at gardening and I was suffering from some failures and I wanted to do more, grow more and expand my knowledge as to how to accomplish this.
This is a very good book to use for reference. There are some great sections that give you an overview of gardening techniques which are helpful but, to me, the most helpful part is the section in which specific plants are discussed in more detail. Pick a few vegetables, fruits, or herbs and then learn specific information about how to grow them successfully. I plan to use this to plan out my garden this year.
I love this book! Lots of helpful, beautiful pictures and it goes into detail about how to grow the vegetables and herbs that I want to grow, from seed to harvest. Great section on composting, which I'm also hoping to learn to do. Highly recommend!
My wife enjoys this book and uses it all the time. I guess it is difficult to go wrong with anything from Better Homes & Gardens. It is full of tips and suggestions for your vegetable, fruit and herb garden.
Very nice book, loads of info on veggie, fruit and herb gardening.I love this book even bought one as a gift for a friend who loves herbs but did'nt know how to grow them. I myself grow veggies, herbs and fruit, so this book is perfect for us both.
It's great to have a reference book like this to read and learn from, and I enjoy the easy way Better Homes and Gardens has with providing the information you need with beautiful pictures. I'd recommend it to anyone for their gardening book collection.Excellent condition as described and fast shipping from seller, even to Alaska. Thank you
I'm a beginning gardener. I checked out several books from the library, including this one, to get started. This was my favorite so I decided to buy a copy for handy reference. I didn't get a fall garden started as planned, but am looking forward to spring!
