I guess for the price I shouldn't have expected much, but this booklet is basic and that is about it. Most of the information I already knew.
For less than a buck, this is a great little read and well worth the money. It's comparable to gardening booklets like one of the Storey Country Wisdom Bulletins (e.g. Pest-Proofing Your Garden: Storey's Country Wisdom Bulletin A-15) that cost several dollars more.I garden on the upper floor of an apartment tower and wind is a huge issue. Yet gardening books -- and websites-- only cover the issue of wind in a paragraph or two. While Mr. Carr's book is by no means exhaustive, it will certainly give the reader a good understanding of how wind affects plants, how windbreaks work along with how to plant and/or construct one, some ideas on landscaping, and lists of both ornamental and edible plants that are especially suited to -- or at least tolerant of -- windy environments (along with those that aren't such a good idea). Most of the material will be familiar to experienced gardeners but there are a lot of good reminders in this little ebooklet as well. As with anything related to gardening, there will be items with which to quibble. For instance, he lumps basil in with other Mediterranean plants like thyme or rosemary that do well in windy condition, while I've found basil (at least varieties like Genovese) needs to be sheltered as much as parsley. But gardeners will never agree with each other 100% of the time. Ever.I'm very pleased with this purchase. After scouring the internet and my local library for information on gardening in windy environments, I have found this ebooklet to be worth every one of the 99 cents I paid for it and thank Mr. Carr for writing it.
