2.0 out of 5 stars Very misleading Title, 20 Nov. 2009
This review is from: Vegetable Growing Month-by-Month: The down-to-earth guide that takes you through the vegetable year (Paperback)
I'm afraid I was very disappointed by this book. I purchased it on the title and reviews expecting what it said on the box. A book that took me, a newbie to all this, through the season month by month.

Well yes there is a small section with perfunctory descriptions of tasks for that month. This is little more than one chapter of the entire book however and not at all what I expected. The rest was just padding. The sort of incidental fluff you can probably find in all the other books you will not doubt accumulate on the subject.

If you want a simple guide to growing vegetable fine. If like me however you was seeking a book that would lead you by the hand through each month setting out in detail what to do and plant each week then this is not it.

How disappointing. I am just about to start growing vegetables in a raised bed and am looking for a basic but helpful guide (not quite an idiot having watched my late father garden over the years and no longer have him to ask for advice!!)

I like this one for week-by-week veg gardening: How to Grow Your Own Food: A Week-by-Week Guide to Wild Life Friendly Fruit and Vegetable Gardening.

Be careful to make adjustments for you local gardening conditions, though. Hope this helps.
