Customer Review

on 25 June 2008
This book is an absolute gem. I bought it because the cover was cute, and the chapters seemed relevant to what I needed it for. But upon getting it, I was pleasantly surprised, even excited by it.

First, I am a visual learner, and this book is cute and well-designed in its layout: easy to read, lots of pictures which for a how-to book is necessary, so I appreciate the extra effort with the layout. As well as going over the basics of gardening, which I needed as a complete idiot/novice, it also has loads of garden 'recipes'. Not actual recipes, more like garden projects... the 'edible flower container', or the 'herbal tea garden', and 'cat garden' to name a few.

It has great chapters on making compost, making a wormery, caring for tools, starting seeds... basically a really good 'grounding' (ha ha) in gardening.

The icing on the cake are the garden-related craft projects, which I did not expect but totally adore: how to make a garden apron, making garden stones, make a planter, bath and beauty plants, with a hand-salve recipe! This books is awesome!

Summary: This book is great for the novice, and the little extras would make it a great addition for the advanced gardener. Still not convinced? Go to amazon.com to "look inside" the book for better chapter content.
