    For the gardener who wants more detail on the what, how, when of specific food plants, including pruning, pests, and selected varieties. Nice first chapter that elaborates on terms and the social and economic of gardening. Not a how-to, but a good in-addition-to for the newer gardener who wants to go in depth with their chosen garden plants.

    Of the dozens of gardening books I've read this is the second I've found that was good enough to buy. It has good information on gardening practices and excellent information on plants (although a rather traditional selection that misses the more interesting plants).

    While this isn't a book that's meant to read through, I did my best. I found it on the library shelves while trying to figure out a good beginner's book on organic gardening. I really found a winner. This book is a great beginning to organic gardening, giving you enough information that, when confronted with a problem or question, you have enough of the gardener's vocabulary to ask the right questions and look up the answer more easily.

It's set up as an encyclopedia so that all the information you need is easily available, plus it has extra resources and suggested reading in the back. If I ever settle down in a house with a garden, I would love love LOVE this book as a house-warming present. (Hint, hint.) Actually, you know that adage that what you receive from someone is what that person would like to receive for her/himself? I think I'll give this book to friends as house-warming presents and see if that works. ;)

    This book is very helpful in teaching when to start and transplant each vegetable and how much of each vegetable to grow per person. One of my complaints about the book is that growing information about some fairly common veggies is totally missing. Not a bit of information about radishes, swiss chard, mustard greens, or turnip greens. (Radishes are pretty easy to grow, so maybe the author didn't think they were worthy.) Another complaint is that the companion information is a bit confusing.

Another complaint is that the companion information is a bit confusing. For a few of the vegetables the author lists another vegetable as an ally and a foe. Huh? I haven't read much of the Organic Remedies section yet, but it looks very helpful (even if it doesn't include photos of diseased plants and pests).

    A must have for vegetable gardeners! It contains information vital for seed starting and harvesting: germination times, days to harvest, spacing information, special planting techniques, storage conditions, and more. I turn to this book constantly during Spring planting.

    This is a good book to flip through. It's pretty much a dictionary for the different types of fruits/veggies you want to grow. It gives you great pointers, and gives you more details for each food item. This is a good book to flip through.

    lots of very useful information in this guide - i found many helpful tips in planning my raspberry and blackberry bush plantings, as well as good tips on composting. it's certainly a book i'll return to for additional advice come next garden season. lots of very useful information in this guide - i found many helpful tips in planning my raspberry and blackberry bush plantings, as well as good tips on composting. it's certainly a book i'll return to for additional advice come next garden season.

    Good book with a lot of useful info, including the care of nut trees. It has no pictures, and is lacking info on popular vegetables like chard and radishes.

    So much concise, useful information! Excited to have this handy reference guide as we prepare to literally put down roots in Oklahoma next year! :)

    One can never read too much and I am always amazed to learn more. Good organic methods to grow, maintain, nourish, and enjoy..all earth friendly! And, of course, all organic!

    I'm as done as I will be for now, but I can see I'll be using this book a lot next year. Denckla draws diverse information into a cogent, convenient form.

    A great book for gardeners. It has almost all the information one could need. Anyone could find this book useful or even a necessity if you garden. If you need a book about plants go with this one.
