Review


New book from Linda Gilkeson… This is the sort of news that organic gardeners in BC should get excited about… Whether you’re a novice gardener or a seasoned grower, there’s lots of really practical, helpful insights in this book. And, like the WCS Growing Guide, it’s regionally specific, so there’s no guess work in adjusting the planting schedules… We see lots of new books come in, but this one deserves some attention, in my opinion.— West Coast Seeds blog

This was my first how-to-garden book and I was so happy to find one specifically for organic gardening, specifically for the Pacific Northwest.

Our temperate cool climate is a challenge, and these season extending techniques will allow you to grow many more "normal" crops.

This was my first how-to-garden book and I was so happy to find one specifically for organic gardening, specifically for the Pacific Northwest. Internet sources are good for general gardening tips; this book is perfect for specific regional tips, planting timetables by season and month, plant troubleshooting (aphids!) and how-to's. I used it as my reference constantly over the last year. Planning my garden was much less frustrating with the lists of plants easy, medium, and challenging to grow in this region. Recently, I found the chapter on seed starting to be a great refresher for starting my own seeds. I'm new to Seattle AND to gardening, and this book has been invaluable for me to learn the quirks of growing in this climate.

I bought the Kindle version so searching the full text for specific topics is so easy. My only critique is that the monthly planting schedules are a little hard to read in the digital format.

I thought there was only one authoritative gardening book for my region (I live near Portland) - Growing Vegetables West of the Cascades, 6th Edition: The Complete Guide to Organic Gardening. But then I found this. Ms. Gilkeson has some different practices and recommendations. I immediately put to use her approach to fall vegetables, and it's already paid off with three big bowls of greens (two mustards and a kale). I learned a lot from this book already, and it will be fun to carry on experiments to see who helps me the most with any particular goal.

Must read if you are trying to garden on the coast or Islands of the Pacific Northwest. Our temperate cool climate is a challenge, and these season extending techniques will allow you to grow many more "normal" crops. Not a good reference if you are in the "normal" areas of the US - like Phoenix.

I think this is a very informative book for the PNW gardener...including information on bugs and issues we face with vegetable plants and fruit trees. The book isn't listed by chapter for each month of the year, but there is a lot of information included for every season throughout the book. Would love to have seen colored pictures, instead of the B&W ones, because you show examples of bugs on the plants, rust on leaves, and more....and it would be nice to be able to compare them to issues on my leaves and plants.

I live in the PNW and have LOVED this book! Though I'm no greenthumb, she has everything calendared out through the year, so if I miss some planting/gardening one month, I just roll on to the next month and pick up where I left off.

This is great book if you live in the NW away from the high desert. The book is thorough and full of good information for intense gardening and year-around gardening. It's well worth the purchase price.

I am a very beginning gardener, but have found this book incredibly helpful, with a calendar which helped me to keep on track with planting, sections for problem solving, and tons of information all relevant to organic gardening here in the PNW. Don't think I could have had such a successful first garden last season without it, and will get much use out of it for years to come. Even bought one for my best friend who is starting her first garden this year!

I live in Vancouver BC and have read a number of gardening book and have been bored to tears by most. This is the first book that I have picked up that is so specific to our geographical area (I am aware there are others). I found the book comprehensive - the author covers a wide variety of topics - and useful. I learned a lot - for example how to make fruit trees work in a small space, why vegetables go to seed, and got some recommendations for varieties that might work for me here in Vancouver. The author is an entomologist so there is also a very good section on pests. A very enjoyable read.
