This book has made the difference for me! At first I thought it would be impossible for me to understand and follow Stan's text, but I must admit I followed his advice to a T and my yard, garden, shrubs, and tree's are healthier than ever. I also love his new service at www.askmrgt.net where I can e-mail and upload photo's directly to the author. This is unbelievable to me that an author would have the time to do this, what a wonderful concept!
