My son liked the book although there are words missing. When listing seeds, the words for these seed types are missing. Just space. But hey thats what you get for free.

It's always funny to me to go through older books and see how they included advertisements for seeds, planters, and more. Boy has our pricing changed in 100 years!

This little gem of a book has several chapter of importance. My favorite was the "The General Arrangement of the Garden". It really helped me understand how to pick flowers and plants from my local nursery.

The language throughout the book can make you laugh since we no longer use words like "vixen", "delightful" and other quirky words.

Purchased this book for my husband and he read it and said that it didn't tell him anything that he didn't already know. I guess it would be good for someone who has no gardening experience what so ever.

This is a good book for the beginner to help plan a small garden. I have a huge garden but now I want to plant more garden rooms. So, this Small Gardens book has helped me in planning.

I am giving this book a five star review because I love reading old books. This one is so interesting to me. If you are true gardener at heart and love old books you will treasure this. It is written in Old English and covers many garden topics. It is interesting to note that this book was written in the late 1800's but mentions raised garden beds and the 'collecting of rainwater'. Garden practices have changed over the years but much of what we consider new today are actually garden practices that date decades back.

If you need a 'how to' book this won't do. This book describes some very unique flowers in it. It also has a lot of information about roses in it as many of the older books do. There is information on bulbs, trees, shrubs, etc. I especially got a kick out of chapter VIII-Enemies of the Garden. Some of the next chapters describe some interesting garden methods.

...but then again, I've been gardening in a small space for a few years. This would be a good book for a beginner. I was actually just looking for a few things that I did not know. I did not find any, but that does not mean that someone with less experience might find it enlightening. The book was well written, and very simple to follow. But not one of my favorites.

I learned a little from reading this and thoroughly enjoyed all of it! I will use what I read and go back to refresh my memory. I didn't recognize all the names used for the plants and had to do some research. I'm really looking forward to improving my backyard garden with paths and a raised bed or two. I will be trying a few new plants also.
