FTC disclosure: I would like to thank Quart Publishing Group- Cool Springs Press for providing me with an advance reader copy via access to the galley for free through the NetGalley program.
I gleaned so much gardening knowledge from this book! I’d highly recommend it for any gardener’s library from novice to expert and anyone just looking for a leisurely book about starting and maintaining a garden.
I am more of a beginner to intermediate gardener myself and I’m always wanting to gain more insight into the how to of assessing and amending soil, growing a plant, and maintaining it for the long haul.
This was the perfect and most timely book for me. The information I’ve read online has been somewhat conflicting to me and this book does an excellent job at dispelling myths as well as reviewing personal and environmental safety concerns by employing homemade alternatives that are actually tried and true.
I loved the enthusiasm brought forth in the book along with the colorful displays, schematics, and step-by-step recipes that are easy to follow and complete, even if you begin with nothing or are in an area where resources are limited.
I will look forward to adding this one to my own gardening library and see myself referring to it time and time again, especially for the fun project ideas!
