I bought this book as a Christmas present. After studying it I wished I had bought a second one for another friend It would always be of use. We lost track of what names of the different plants we grew. Feel it would be a great help even for a reasonably experienced gardener. Am confident we shall do better this year. Mind you my son has to fill it in. Would like to have had longer to study it but of course had to pass it on. Will maybe order another one sometime which proves I am happy with it.
as an avid gardener i understand and appreciate the common difficulties of arranging where to place certain vegetables and plants, trying to predict full heights, who likes shade, who hates full sunlight or dry soil etc, this book is helpful in organising you to think and plan ahead, it has some useful information on veges.
