A Beginners Guide to Companion Planting: Companion Gardening with Flowers, Herbs & Vegetables (Simple Living) (English Edition) Reviews
A very good and instructiv book for small gardeners , with many interesting ideas to combine usefull with beauty ,so all you need to begin and develop an organic garden.
I do not often give five star reviews, in fact I mostly review books that annoy me. (Check my reviews if you have any doubts.) This is one of the few exceptions. It is excellent with regard to content, accuracy of information, and flow and structure of the book itself. I have been an enthusiastic Permaculture gardener for two decades and often look at new gardening books. I am fairly experienced but I have already found several new tips - things that I was unaware of until now. This is without doubt the best that I have so far found on Amazon. I have already recommended it to several people who have an interest in developing a high producing garden in a relatively small space - such as survivalists or "preppers" as they are known in the US.This is an excellent book and I can enthusiastically recommend it.
is that the diagrams, especially the Ven diagrams, which are basically the summation of the info presented, are so small as to be practically useless. I read the book on my Kindle and loved the info, in fact, after reading over a dozen gardening how-to books the past few days I'm rating this right up in the top three. The info deserves 5 stars. But even after switching over to the computer to try to see them on the much larger area of the monitor, when they're enlarged they go blurry. I'll figure it out, but if this could be fixed it would greatly improve the useability of the book.
I consider myself an avid vegetable gardener, but I've only had a garden two years so I'm definitely still in the beginner camp. I've been reading a lot about it, but I've learned the most just from talking to other gardeners. My boss has had a huge, successful garden for most of 30 years, and he's taught me the post, and he was teaching me about companion planting before I had ever heard of the term or knew what it meant.This book is really rather basic, doesn't present anything that hasn't been mentioned before, and the drawings/illustrations are so tiny as to be useless (I looked on kindle keyboard & on my kindle nook app, which is in color). If you try to enlarge the screen (which I did) the drawings end up blurry.The only "good" thing about this book is its length - and the reason why I gave this 3 stars. The book is very short, but it makes it very easy for you to find the information you are looking for. If you are about to plant peas, for example, and you can't remember what to plant with it or what not to plant with it, it's easy enough to find that section in the book.The other good thing is the author does talk about what flowering plants are good for your garden - something I attempted to do last year, but all my flowers died, defeating the purpose.
This is a good book. It is easy to read and has some good information. One thing is how to attract good insects, and this works. I live in high desert on land that had never been planted. Without any blooms other than cactus early in the year I had no native bees. Slowly they have come here to live. Amazingly, I can work in the garden and even touch or brush up against them without being stung. So, any information is great to me. This book presents good theories and info and beginning gardeners should give it a read.
Pros: This book contains fantastic information and a really useful series of appendices in the back that help you set up your garden in a way that saves space and keeps your soil more able to support all of your veggies. It's short and sweet and full of information that's distilled to be useful - I read it in one night and then planned out my garden the next day (and ended up being able to grow 2-3 times as much as I'd anticipated, because this let me know how to use my space effectively with companion plants).Cons: The charts can be hard to read on a kindle (I opened them on a computer with a large monitor and blew them up). If you're a stickler for grammar, I should warn you that this book will make you twitch constantly, as it's full of misspellings and grammatical problems that can obscure meaning in some places.Nevertheless, you really can't get more for your money, and I enthusiastically recommend this to anyone who's beginning to garden, or who just wants healthier soil and better use of their space.
