If you're looking to start gardening or to update your current knowledge about gardening, this book is the place to start. Steve Frowine makes the gardening information accessible, practical and fun. Like all the ...for Dummies books, I particularly like the no-nonsense way he describes some fundamental gardening tasks like planting a tree or creating a flower bed. This book covers all the basics such as vegetable and fruit gardening, herb gardening, flower gardening, landscaping with trees and shrubs, growing bulbs, container gardening and even gardening projects with kids.But it's also good for a more experienced gardener. There's a detailed chapter on building and water gardens and raising fish and some quick, handy gardening projects to do.
I killed a cactus. This book is not designed to fix that kind of stupid. It gives some basics, but not quick and easy tricks. It expects you to know something. I got more help from internet research.
i have a little garden and i wanted to learn how to manage it. this book really helped me learn many things that i honestly didn't know before.( i have never gardened and usually had someone come in weekly to plant and clean it up) slowly i'm doing little thing the book suggests and i'm enjoying it.
I am horrible at landscaping/keeping up my yard and I was hoping this would help but it is more focused on other topics. It also using a lot of terminology that I am not familiar with... that's why I bought the for dummies version! Other than that, it arrived on time and in perfect condition.
I know almost nothing about gardening and I want to plant a very simple tomato, lettuce and herb garden in our flower beds. I don't want to get overwhelmed; just start simple. This book was just right! Gave me just the bagic info I need to do this project.
Awesome book for gardening novices or experts alike! Full of useful information that anyone can utilize. Everyone is sure to find something in here that they didn't know or perhaps forgot! Great starting point for beginners!
I really enjoyed this book and can't wait till next spring to start my first garden. This book is full of helpful information and tips for the first time gardener.
This is a shovel, this is dirt, the plant goes here... A little more in depth than that but overall really basic as the title implies. It was a quick download which I don’t regret but would not buy again.
