    Must Have

    This book is a must have for anyone gardening at home. Not only do you get the A-Z plants and gardening topics covered by the encuclopedia, but also overall information on how to garden well (and without the use of chemicals). Great for anyone getting started or to the experienced gardener to have as a reference. Excellent book!

    Would love the book if gliches were fixed

    I get intermittent capital R's and F's on some of the text. The book can be viewed fine with my computer but not on my nook. I have notified b&n and they told me the problem would be fixed within 10 days and to redownload. It has been two months and the problem is still not fixed.

    Phenomenal Book but issues

    The book itself is a plethora of information and worth every penny but there are sections as another reviewer has stated that are replaced with capital R's and F's.

    Cannot read on IPad and IPhone

    The book is a great gardening tool but can read only parts of it. I have an IPad and IPhone with the Nook app. Contacted Barnes and Noble. No resolution.
