I am a novice gardener, interested in raised bed gardening, and this book was so frustratingly a waste of money. Actually, I tore 3 pages out of it and threw the rest of it away.
Chapter 1: What is Raised Bed gardening? I could find this online in 2 seconds by doing a search. Chapter 2: Benefits of raised gardening. Again, do an online search for free. Chapter 3: Different bed frame ideas. Look online for free. Chapter 4: The best raised bed for your purposes? Asks the reader a lot of one line questions about what they are looking for in a raised bed. Again, this is all answerable by doing a free online search. Chapter 5: Positioning your garden beds. I ripped this chapter out and will keep it for my files. It talks about planting like plants together. Chapter 6: Site Preparation. Again, do a free online search. This chapter talks basically about sunlight and watering. Chapter 7: Raised bed construction. Obvious with a free online search. Chapter 8: Soil Mix. Talks about Compost, and proper garden soil composition. Do a free online search. Chapter 9: Growing your Vegetables. Basics of growing. Chapter 10: Vegetable Rotation. I ripped this out too. Talks about moving crops each season so the soil remains healthy. Chapter 11: Planting. Is 2 paragraphs in length. Chapter 12: Flower Beds. Is 3 paragraphs in length. Chapter 13: Pest Control. Is 5 short paragraphs with links to other resources pasted in.
Overall this book, is more like an informational booklet totaling 40 pages, which only about 32 pages is devoted to gardening. It isn't worth the time or the money to buy. Again, I am a novice gardener who will be started her first veggie garden this coming summer (2015) and this book is just too basic for even a beginner. All this info I can find online for free.
The 3 pages I did tear out, are not worth the $10 I paid for this book.
I'm sure this is the product of some free-to-publish internet blog site or something like that, so whatever, but I feel like it should be a free download ebook AT BEST.
My advice is to pay an extra $5 and buy something that amounts to more than a high school horticulture report.
The two authors really know what they are talking about and their writing is very concise and informative. They offer step-by-step instructions that are easy to understand and will work in all gardens in all climates. You can't help but be successful with this book; your raised bed garden will grow more healthy and more lush and even beat out some of the old gardening techniques you have learned in your life.
Even though I am a beginner, I think this book can help anyone who is looking into container gardening. There is a lot of information that will get the new gardener started and the veteran gardener producing more vegetables. I used to dread gardening season but this year I am looking forward to it and already planning some recipes for my harvest. I give this book 5 stars and then some! It is one of the best gardening resources I have ever seen!
