This book is fantastic. All I need for gardeneing advice. Well done Don...





I bought this book for my 23yo sister and she loved it. She doesn't normally read, but as a new homeowner that doesn't know much about gardening, she found it amazing. Written informally, easy for everyday people to read. Excellent information for beginner gardiners.
