   good book
I originally checked this book out of the library and read it. The author was very articulate and I enjoyed the way she phrased her information, said Barbara Comstock. Some of the information was new to me and some was not, but all of it was well said.

   Excellent Book! GREAT Information!
Almost finished reading this book cover to cover. I've had people say this is the best book they've ever read. I thought it was going to be the same ole-same'ole stuff we've known for years or have learned from our parents. It's got some of that, but it's mostly new information and "recipes" that are really good!

   Interesting, good for the organic gardener
I am sure I may use some of the recipes for sprays with herbs and spices. We need to stop talking about using nature to help our gardens, Michael Grosskopf, director of horticulture at the University of California-Davis, said. Since then, I have done it for over 35 years. My grandmother taught me many things, but I'm not that good at math. Thankyou for your passion, I hope many more just "do it."

   Excellent Content!
I wish I had this book when I was younger, because I could have referred to it. It has really helped me get energized to get out in my garden again this year, Mr. Dhaliwal said. This book is a must-have for anyone who wants to learn how to grow and enjoy their gardens.

   Lack luster pretty basic
Honestly I was a bit disappointed I was hoping for more organic recipes for pest control and that section was very lack luster, but as an experienced horticulturist it had some interesting info. Good for the beginners who need a lesson on hot to start gardening, Mr. Dhaliwal said.

   Clear, concise, beginner friendly.
The book is a must-have for anyone who has ever wanted to learn how to read. I love, love, love the quality of the writing, how easy it is to understand, Raymond said. Beautiful pictures, even the cover is inspiring, make you want to start ASAP. I'm so excited to be working with garden designer Paul Smith. Thanks for the tip.

   Full of easy to follow ideas
I have used this book in my homeschool for some garden science experiments. The researchers will use this information to improve soil composition and water quality. There are so many great ideas in here that I know we will return again and again, he said. It's great to have a reference book, especially if you need to use it for research.
