A great read for the gardener inside you! This book is good for both seasoned gardeners and newbies, because it really covers so many angles. It is easy to read, it is well structured, and I love the pictures in the book. Highly recommended!

Whether you have a proper garden, a balcony or simply a windowsill where you are planning to have your own herbs, this book is going to be your comprehensive guide from A to Z. We have just moved into a new home where I have a green patch to play with. This book is full of great ideas I will use when I start my gardening adventure next spring.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for an Advance Review Copy.

I could not view this book! I tried opening it in a variety of ways, and at no point did the file function properly.

What a great, easy to read book.
I've always been a gardener.....but plants not vegetables so I got this book to get me started.
It really is very easy to read and provides knowledge on everything from the vegetables to the soil they need.
A very good book. Perfect for beginners.

I loved how detailed this book was and as a teacher it would be really fun to have students read over the different vegetables and discuss what they’d like to include in our vegetable garden. They would also be able to research some information in this book and would help me ensure the best outcome possible!

[Received from netgalley for an honest review]

An incredibly insightful book in the a-z of home vegetable gardening. Takes into account the soil type, how to test soil, growing conditions, companion planting and more!

This is a book all home veggie growers should own.

My only complaint is the formating of the book I received made for a double page spread meaning it was extremely inconvenient to zoom in to read and then zoom out to change page and broke the flow of my reading.

I will be buying this book when it releases!
