Content is great but the nook book has no illustrations at all.

This book is a classic. I got it for my husband because he's such a great gardener. However, I didn't realize when I purchased that it was a very small paperback. It would easily fit in a suit pocket! But the illustrations are lovely and he did like the book. Just wish the seller would have emphasized the size.

Good for personel use. I wouldn't give it as a gift or buy it for long term use.
