    EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    All through the book it discusses the center FULL COLOR ILLISTRATIONS and refers to them in most chapters. Barnes & Noble NookBooks really disappointed on this one!!!!! I requested a refund, but of course I didn't get one! HALF the book is missing!!!! I bought this book, looking forward to the COLORED PICTURES in the center that would help me get some container gardening ideas. There wasn't one single colored picture -- no pictures at all!!!!! What's the point of the NookCOLOR if you don't get any pictures, especially the colored pictures, the book discusses. Total let-down and VERY disappointed in Barnes & Noble for their lack of concern regarding this book!!!!!

    Upgrade your horticultural dummy status!

    This is a great intro volume for condo/apartment dwellers who want to bring some horticultural joy into their lives - well-organized, clearly written and covers most topics the urban gardener needs to achieve abundant results.
