I first found this book in my public library. As I am new to an actual ground garden (as opposed to containers -- even then I am still a novice) and I am becoming even more conscientious of our environment, I decided to give it a try. I ended up having it out on loan for approximately three months and then bought a copy of it from Amazon. I was quite happy with the detail that I found in it. I was especially happy with the section on seeds and seeding (something I seem to have NO luck with so far). Lots of relevant categories and many tips and techniques are given. It covers the basics plus a bunch of added bonuses. Perhaps when I am a more accomplished gardener I won't reach for it as often; but for now, I find it to be very useful. It is a very handy reference book to have on hand.
