an informative little read even when you have allowed for the American language names they use when naming some plants. What do I know once Hollywood decided God was American the battle was lost

This is the only book on square-foot gardening that I have read so I cannot compare it to any others.

The book introduced me to the advantages of square-foot gardening, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it because it very clearly told me how to proceed. I came away convinced that I now had all the required information to construct and grow a successful square-foot garden. I was especially pleased with the description of recommended soil mixes and am now confident that I can provide my plants with a satisfactory growing medium.

The organic pest control methods to be used for various types of insects also impressed me.

I intend to mix up a batch of the garlic spray detailed in the book so I can use it on all my plants this year if they are attacked by insects.
