5.0 out of 5 stars Gardening Basics for Dummies February 22, 2007
Format:Paperback
If you're looking to start gardening or to update your current knowledge about gardening, this book is the place to start. Steve Frowine makes the gardening information accessible, practical and fun. Like all the ...for Dummies books, I particularly like the no-nonsense way he describes some fundamental gardening tasks like planting a tree or creating a flower bed. This book covers all the basics such as vegetable and fruit gardening, herb gardening, flower gardening, landscaping with trees and shrubs, growing bulbs, container gardening and even gardening projects with kids.

But it's also good for a more experienced gardener. There's a detailed chapter on building and water gardens and raising fish and some quick, handy gardening projects to do.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is not for the braindead gardner March 6, 2011

I killed a cactus. This book is not designed to fix that kind of stupid. It gives some basics, but not quick and easy tricks. It expects you to know something. I got more help from internet research.

I recently purchased a new home and it needs a lot of landscaping (flowering/beds). I even found a section on staking poles for trees and vines - very pleased.
