2.0 out of 5 stars Vertical gardens with hedges and lawnmowers ... 25 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase
I am an avid gardener and have dozens of gardening books. Some I find invaluable, some I rarely consult. I read this book because I have an interest in urban gardening, hydroponics and container gardening.
So will "Vertical Gardening and Container Gardening" be one of the books I consult again and again? Sorry, no.
The book runs to about 72 pages; but are they relevant? There are sections explaining the health benefits, and there is a lot about composting, however I found it very sketchy on solid information relating to the title. I may be being unfair, but it seems there is a lot that is simply not relevant to the subject. We are advised to "Use ... an old push lawnmowers if possible". Apart from a grammatical problem, the author did not explain how to use a push lawnmower on a vertical or container garden. A diagram or photograph would have helped here.
In the composting section there is this advice:
"Personal Items
You may want to bury these items deep in your compost pile to keep prying eyes from seeing your unmentionables
Cardboard tampon applicators
Latex condoms"
Fine, but haven't I read that somewhere else? Yes, there is an article entitled "75 Things You Can Compost, But Thought You Couldn't" by Colleen Vanderlinden, on the howstuffworks website, which says:
"Personal Items
It might be a good idea to bury these items in your pile. Just sayin'.
37. Cardboard tampon applicators
38. Latex condoms".
It seems much of Colleen's article appears in this book verbatim.
So how much of this book is available elesewhere?

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't provide the inspiration I needed 27 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase
Being a complete novice, and having only two very small gardens, I thought this book might be the answer.

Yes, it's given me some good ideas as well as knowledge of which plants are best in which situation along with a comprehensive chapter on composting, but there was a distinct lack of diagrams and pictures.

As far as I'm aware this is only available as an ebook, so as well as the pictures, the map and diagrams were so small they really were of no use whatsoever. With no table of contents this wasn't an easy book to manoeuvre around.

To sum up, I was lucky to download this for free, but I wouldn't pay the £3 asking price. I found it quite bland but it has started me checking vertical gardens out on the internet.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely fragmented and mildly disappointing 19 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase
Although this sort book captures a number of good ideas it does hop around a lot and doesn't really follow through only any of them. The "vertical" element of the title is somewhat misleading as true vertical gardening (hydroponic stacks, growing vine crops on lines etc.) is barely touched on but it does provide some useful guidance for people with small gardens looking for space saving ideas. Reviewing the order I see that I got this as a free Kindle download a year or so ago - I'd say that a fair price would be 49p, not the £3.08 that it's listed for today.
