When you order our book you'll find that the cover is different from the one displayed. There is a good reason for that. After we finished it, we decided to do a Cheap and Easy series. To that end, we redesigned the cover to help establish the series. Amazon has not updated their library and we don't know if they ever will. The cover of your book will be similiar to the cover of Cheap and Easy Houseplants, just a different shade of green. The few remaining copies of the cover with the blonde are only available at our book signings. Sorry for any confusion.
So many garden books tell you you HAVE to do thus and so and NEVER do that. These authors have made gardening so much easier than that. You can save money, your back and a lot of time by using their tips One of my favorite is about composting without the compost pile.
The tips here take into account almost all gardening conditions. They tell you what works in different zones and what doesn't. So many garden books read as though we all live in the Midwest. One of the authors lives Out West and knows the trouble we gardeners have out here. I learned a lot.
