I'm not a fan of the book format, it's laid out like newspaper columns 2 to a page instead of just going from side to side of the page, not a natural reading flow.

The information is well presented and there were a lot of "little tips" to take note of that will be put to good use.

Planting information was subjective, author suggested which varieties were the 'best tasting' But a nice variety of plants.
