Editorial Reviews

Review

"Everything you need to know about hydroponics and then some! George Van Patten is the author. Need I say more? The book is written in layman's terms and is complete with illustrations and photos. A necessity for all indoor gardeners!" --.

"For over twenty years, Gardening Indoors has been considered 'The Bible' of indoor growing. It is literally a one stop gardening encyclopedia of information for both the beginner to the very experienced gardener. If I was to buy only one book on indoor gardening, this would be the one." --.

This is a tough review to write, because the book is actually very good. The problem is the title. The title implies that hydroponics is an important focus of the book, but it isn't. The book has about 20 chapters, and only one, the 13th is about hydroponics. In addition the chapter contains only vague details about how to setup and use hydroponics. The book would be much better titled: "Gardening Indoors", then it could get the ranking it deserves.

After seven years of purchasing books here, this is my first review. I think so highly of this book I had to write a review. High quality product, and information. This book may not have enough meat for a graduate student to use but certainaly the greenhouse owner or gardenstore worker will benefit greatly. Nice depth in wide array of topics. Good full color photographs used liberally throughout the book. Very best information available on lighting in the greenhouse or indoor applications. I have read a full dozen books on hydroponics, and greenhouse operations for the home grower or small farm. This is the best. If you need one book this is it.

I think the book is outdated

Their is no info on LED lights... which I, and may other people own

Also the book has many ADs, Yes you heard it... advertisements

At least 10 pages of advertisements for various hydroponic products in the book... not sure why I should pay for this

But... the book does have some very good information

I have done a great purchase. This book is full of detailed explanations and very useful information, based on scientific facts but with understandable words (I must say I'm not English spoken). Great, Great, Great.

This book fails to impress. I have spent a few hours a day for 2 weeks reading all I can find online about indoor gardening and hydroponics but I cannot say I would have saved time buying this book and reading it instead. In 2 hours of reading this book I was more than 1/3 thru it and I had learned nothing that I had not already learned for free. In addition, the material in the book is presented in a haphazard fashion and much of the material is repeated twice or more times. I would say this book is about 10-20% useful information that you could have found for free with a few internet searches, and about 80-90% fluff.

There are some sections where the pics and captions will tell you all you need to know but then the author needlessly rewrites the same info in confusing blocks of text after it. Then there are other blocks of text that severely need informative pictures and captions to visually illustrate key points, however the pictures and captions in these instances either don't exist or are of poor quality.

Other sections contain purely confusing or contradicting advice. For example, the author recommends putting seedlings under HID light to provide a drying element, but then later says seedlings should be grown under fluorescent lights until flowering.

There is no uniform voice or tone to the book, it just feels like a regurgitation of info that the author hurriedly skimmed before cutting and pasting it in the book.

So in summary this book will waste your time and money, give you no clear path to how to start an indoor garden hydroponically or otherwise, and leave you confused by its terrible explanation of important topics like PAR, and pruning, all the while providing no logical progression of the series of events that must take place in order to nurture a seed to a full term vegetable harvest.
