Although I know a little bit about gardening you can never remember everything, this book is great, it explains how to do various things - seeding, taking cuttings, problems etc. I found found it very useful and would recommend this book to anyone who is not an expert

Format: Paperback
Bought this to teach me the basics as I really needed to sort the garden out. Lots of simple explanations on soil types, plant types (annuals, perenials etc) and answered lots of questions. It is American so lots of reference to their seasons and climate relative to South and North America but the sentiment is the same. Has basic sections on Roses, dealing with pests etc but the book mainly covers the basics of working in the garden. Really helped me and still refer to it when I get stuck.

This book is perfect for the first time gardener! Took a little longer than I expected for it to arrive (6 days). This was a birthday gift and did not arrive until day after birthday. Other than that, I was very satisfied.
