This is a wonderful resource for planning a garden. I have tried many times over the years to have a garden and I’m just never that successful! After looking through this planner, I started to understand more about why my garden was failing. This planner is full of great information about many different crops! I am really excited to buy one and start planning for my garden in the future!

Loved the layout of this garden planner! Lots of different spots to add your content and grid paper to plan out exactly your garden.

This handy planner was fantastic. Not only does it have so much information about each vegetable, but how to plant it, when, temps in needs to be, suggestions...I was able to review the ebook of it and am seriously considering purchasing a hard copy as well so I can have easy access to it and its wealth of knowledge!

What an awesome resource for someone planting a vegetable garden! This planner would be great for seasoned gardeners to newbies.

A bright, colorful book with a lot of resources - full of reference charts, companion planting guides, lots of places to sketch out your garden, keep track of when & where you bought seeds, & much more!

Do a little (writing/planning), or do a lot. It's great for a variety of personalities & easy to tailor to what you need.

(Thanks to Netgalley & the Publisher. I was able to preview this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)

As a first time gardener this year I truly enjoyed the ease with which this got me started. The basic information for each crop, planting schedules, note sections, and suggestions for what notes to take has made this process so much more approachable.

This is a really useful book. When I read this book, I realise very quickly that it is so much more than I had originally expected. It contains so much detail not so much that you would feel overwhelmed by it, but enough that even a real novice like myself might actually be able to successfully grow some vegetables or some herbs from seed in my garden.
I would recommend this book to anybody who was looking at either starting or improving the vegetable or herb garden.
My thanks to the author, the publisher and to NetGalley four, allowing me to read this book. I am leaving this review voluntarily.

A great, comprehensive garden planner along with beutiful illustrations. The author has thought of everything, frost dates, seed storage, when to sow, and a mini guide to each vegetable. If you are new to gardening or a pro this will definitely come in handy.

As a teacher, wife, and a mother of two, I am always on the hunt for fun and educational books. Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was interesting and not what I expected. This year I am moving to a different grade level and part of their standards is learning about plants. This book has inspired me to have a garden with my group of students next year. This is the perfect book for someone who is a beginner in gardening and wants to learn more as well as plan out their garden when they don’t know where to start.

The Vegetable Garden Planner was a nice beginner garden planner. It was full of easy to use planning and note taking pages that were sprinkled with good information to have on hand for the vegetables that they chose to include in the planner. They had a spot for putting research links, which I thought was convenient… especially if you use it as a digital planner. A little less convenient for a printed planner, but still a nice touch. The list of vegetables included was pretty extensive, but they also included blank pages for you to add any crops that weren’t included in the pre-made sheets! They also included a few pages for you to plot out your garden, which I found extremely helpful for plant placement and spacing! All in all a great beginner garden planner!

I really enjoyed reading through The Vegetable Garden Planner by Lynn Byczynski! Thank you to Storey Publishing and NetGalley for access to this ARC for my honest review.

I loved Byczynski's new take on the garden planner. I think it is a great idea to break down the journal by plant instead of by year. This format will make it so much easier for gardeners to track specific plants and find their tracking pages easily.

I also really liked the beautiful drawings of each plant as well as the helpful tips and tricks to be successful.

I am brand new to gardening. Literally haven’t even put a vegetable in the ground yet. But recently my kids have expressed interest in gardening. So we got a handful of started vegetables, and I wanted a book to give me some easy step by step instructions. This was exactly that. The colors and illustrations are beautifully done, and everything was written down in a way a total newbie can understand. I love the pages to write down your own garden plans, and so many extra pages at the back! Will definitely be using this!
