I found this book to be very informative. Janit Calvo gives lots of helpful tips and also gives reasons why this or that would work. I found I didn't want to put it down. I can't wait to use my new learning in my new outside miniature garden.

A lot of pictures, but not as many good or new ideas as I had hoped
