    Can't Say Enough Good Things - I Keep Giving Mine Away, it's SO Good For Both New and Experienced Gardeners

    Barbara teaches us the basics - "think like a plant" - in a gentle, funny and convivial tone. I miss not having it around - I keep giving my current copy away to friends who express an interest in gardening. I went online to try to find another copy and ended up compelled to add my own review. I have a small suburban yard and Barbara has helped me bring it a level of usefulness and beauty that is immensely satisfying. I wish she were my friend in fact and not just through her pages!

    Comprehensive Garden Guide

    Barbara Damrosch is a self-confirmed 'old-fashioned dirt gardener.' And, she's does organic gardening to boot. This book is a comprehensive, easily understood guide to all aspects of gardening it even includes a chapter on houseplants. I like that Damrosch prefers hand tools over power tools. And, that she uses her hands to pull weeds at times. The chapter on 'what plants need,' was terrific--covers the basics and gave me a firm understanding of what plants require to thrive. The book contains all you need to grow annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, trees, shrubs and vines. Indispensable! from the author of the award winning book, Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet

    Great Guide for All Gardeners

    This book contains a wealth of information about many different types of gardens, lawns, and plants. However, it is not overwhelming for beginners! Great organization, full of tried and true techniques and advice, and witty commentary. A must-have for every home gardener. The illustrations are not bad, but I would love more illustrations and color photos in future editions of this book.

    Great Reference

    This is a great resource. It has a little bit about so many things, both overall tips and plant specific tips. I lost this book in a house fire last year. I'd just moved into a colder zone and struggled without my 'gardening bible'. I use it all the time.

    Best gardening book around!

    If you are looking for beautiful color photographs, this book is not for you. HOWEVER, if you want a resouce book that you will constantly use year after year and one where the explanations and instructions are easy to follow, this is THE book. Sound advice, common sense approach to gardening, with thorough explanations about procedures to follow. Have many gardening books and this is the one in which I always find the answers!
