Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for beginners! At Christmastime, I gave this book to a friend who just bought her first home and has a garden for the first time. This week I received a lovely thank you card and some photos with the fruits of her labors. The book is filled with practical advice for beginners, but I'm sure a more seasoned garden can learn something new. I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Informational! Just ordered this online. Not really what I was looking for as I do not have a garden myself (I live in an apartment). However, being in love with plants, this guide had lots of details and especially pictures for whatever you may need to know about gardening. There are ideas as to how to decorate your garden or how to grow your plant in containers instead. For the price, I highly recommend this voluminous and detailed book! Even if it's just to look at the pictures! It will be useful for years to come!
